Deuteronomy 1:6-8: Borders of Freedom
When the next slide illuminates the screen, you see a map of the Promised Land. Not the land per se, but its borders, its boundaries.

Deuteronomy 1:6-7a: Time to Move Out
As the next slide clicks into place, you shift slightly to ward off stiffness and think, "this message isn't quite what I expected. I was expecting a pep fest, a locker room rouser—not a history lesson." But you’re still captivated. Maybe it's the old man's cadence. Maybe because you feel like each word is spoken… Continue reading Deuteronomy 1:6-7a: Time to Move Out

Transition: A Call To Complete Devotion, Intro. To Deuteronomy, part 2
As your leader takes a drink of water and prepares for his first discourse, you gaze at the people around you. These are your people. Your family. The seeds of your new nation.

Transition: On the Banks of The River, Intro. To Deuteronomy, part 1
The sun is mercilessly beating down on you as you stand on the banks of the river. A bead of sweat runs down the back of your neck, but you don't notice.
