Sermon 27 March 2022 (Lent 4)

Forward into the promise, or back to Egypt? by Fr. Dana

Simple Summary:  The first generation Israelites did not receive the land that was specifically promised to them, because they favoured going back into slavery over going forward into destiny. The “second generation” Israelites who had wandered in the desert for forty years were the ones who actually possessed the inheritance, because they were willing to go forward into a new land and fight for it. We stand in a similar place today….
