Fall Sermon Series (continued):  Journey to Freedom

In October, we continue and conclude our journey for the fall through the story of the Exodus, the journey of the Israelite people out of slavery in Egypt and into the Promised Land.  Through years of wandering and self-discovery, the people faced key questions of what it means to be a nation and, more specifically, a nation called to be and to live as God’s people… fertile ground for reflection as we approach a time of national elections.
