    Often the wilderness is a dangerous place, frought with danger, anxiety, vulnerability. Out there, we are usually the prey or the victim, but it is also the place where we encounter God.

We live in cities, towns and villages, but for the most part we stay out of the wilderness unless there is something there for us. But in the Bible, a lot of important things happen in the ...read more
