Wandering and wondering
WE ARE NEVER ALONE IN THE WILDERNESS.
IT'S GOD'S FAVORITE PLACE. ~ Jim McGill
Studying the Bible, I have learned, helps us relate to the Israelites in the wilderness. Their wandering was a period of doubting and testing God, building trust in God, being trained to be his people. It’s a process of transformation and education, renewal and revelation. And we're never too old to begin!
Grow your faith along with me
I must admit, I'm a latecomer to Bible study. It started with a family ministry: editing and publishing my father’s gospel-based novel, "Letters to Luke: From His Fellow Physician, Joseph of Capernaum." Now I’m enrolled in an intensive four-year Bible course through the University of Dallas and Greco Institute—and loving it. Here I will share thoughts and reflections as each year progresses. Please join me in the journey. There’s a line in "Letters to Luke": “I do not know where following the words of Jesus will lead us, but may the God of Israel guide us all.”
