Travel to the Promise Land


Today's reading in our Lenten Journey Creation to the Cross:  The Story OF God's People, BY God's People, tracks the wanderings of the Israelites as they attempt to get to the Promise Land.  Today's reading is another long one, coming in at 32 minutes, but in comparison to the 40 years (a full generation) that the Israelites were walking it should seem short ;-)  Putting this reading into perspective, we hear how Moses, whose beginnings we heard yesterday, trys to lead his newly freed people.  They seem to forget pretty early on in this journey what it was like before God freed them, and quickly turn to complaining about their situation.  What I find as encouraging in the midst of that though, is that God doesn't give up on them, but instead provides exactly what they need from day to day.
