Rivers in the Wilderness
There is a wonderful refrain in Isaiah 43, “I will make [for you], a way in the wilderness and streams in the desert.” This is the promise that God gives to us just before we launch into a new adventure. This is the promise that we hear just before something traumatic upsets the fruit basket of our lives. It’s Lent and the disciples are following Jesus towards Jerusalem. Things are about to get interesting. For the last three years, the Jesus movement has been enjoying the quiet hills of Galilee and steadily growing as people come out for picnics with the greatest story teller that ever lived.
