In The Land Between, pastor Jeff Manion uses the biblical story of the Israelite’s journey through the Sinai desert as a metaphor for being in an undesired time of transition. After enduring generations of slavery in Egypt, the descendants of Jacob travel through the desert (the land between) toward their new home in Canaan. They are unable to go back and incapable of moving forward. Their reactions provide insight and guidance on how to respond to God during our own seasons of difficult transition.
The Land Between is a five-session small group Bible study providing fresh biblical insight and hope, guidance, and encouragement for people traveling through undesired and difficult transitions—foreclosure, unemployment, uncertainty, and failure. Such times provide our greatest opportunity for spiritual growth. God desires to meet us in our chaos and emotional upheaval, and he intends for us to encounter his goodness and provision, his hope and guidance.
In The Land Between, you will learn:
- How to respond to God during your times of transition and difficulty
- How to find God in your pain and trust him in your waiting
- That the land between is essential for faith transformation and growth
