One of my (Kurt's) favorite books of all time is The Land Between. Pastor Jeff Manion uses the biblical story of the Israelite's journey through the Sinai desert as a metaphor for being in an undesired time of transition. After enduring generations of slavery in Egypt, the descendants of Jacob travel through the desert (the land between) toward their new home in Canaan. They crave the food of their former home in Egypt and despise their present environment. They are unable to go back and incapable of moving forward. Their reactions provide insight and guidance on how to respond to God during our own seasons of difficult transition. Jeff joins us for a conversation that you just can't miss!
