« Praying at Antioch | Main | Capital Punishment & Emmaus Way »

I like your thoughts on the wilderness. I think it is a place of judgment not punishment. Judgment carries more of a constructive, transformational purpose than punishment. I was preaching on Isaiah 43 on Sunday where God says, "Forget the former things, don't dwell on the past. See I am doing something new." Then he goes on to describe this something new as transforming the wilderness into a place of blessing and worship. I think God continually redeems our acts of destruction in constructive and transformational ways. Israel was so caught up in their past, the past sin, God's past provision, and their sense of over importance because of that past that they were missing the new blessings of God. Kudos to you and your community for engaging in this powerful dialogue. I started a blog after the theological conversation at Yale. You should check it out. I added you to my blogroll.
