Life in the Wilderness – Introduction

“Wilderness” is an inhospitable place. We might like to go to the wilderness to relax if we are prepared, but nobody likes it when you feel “inner wilderness.” I’m talking about feels of shame, loneliness, remorse, fear. These are part of the human experience, but they feel like inhospitable wilderness inside of us.

This Lenten season we are looking at biblical characters who went through inner wilderness times. We will learn from them how God handles our wilderness times and what to do (or not to do!).
