Last year, at Virtual Vacation Bible School we told stories of the Israelites’ captivity and exile to Babylon. As we began our own pandemic exile, we empathized with their grief as they missed their beloved Temple and traditions just as we were missing our church building and community.
It’s now a year later. We have walked this long road together but the journey is not quite finished. Although there a signs of hope, we’re starting to ask, “Are we there yet?”
VBS 2021 again looks to the stories of our faith to provide guidance for our life. Welcome to Wilderness Wanderings: God Prepares a People. This summer we will gathering together again (outdoors and in-person on the grounds of the Unitarian Universalist Congregation in Princeton) to revisit the story of the Exodus and the 40-year trek through the desert from Egypt to the Promised Land. Along the way, God provided water, food, rules for living together, and leaders for the people. As we journey through this pandemic, God provides for us—young and old, individuals and the church community—what we need too.
