How does the Israelites’ story intersect with your story?

The Israelites traversed the desert, heading toward the promised land. Similarly, we are a faith community heading into a new future. As we do, it is essential that together we reflect on what it means to follow God well—into the unknown—so we don’t miss out on what God has for us. 

In this series, we learn from the Israelites’ story, found in the Old Testament Book of Deuteronomy. They were called, by God, to remember in order to follow God well. 

Core Passage: Deuteronomy 6:4-8

Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads.
