An Abiding Hope:
The Presence of God
in Exodus and
Deuteronomy

by Janice Catron

Suggestions for Leaders
by Martha Sadongei

The books of Exodus and Deuteronomy invite us to
remember that the central actor in human experience — in our own lives and in the experiences described in Exodus and Deuteronomy—is God. Our God is one who redeems, who brings liberty and fulfillment even when we do not deserve it, when we cannot redeem ourselves. We have the assurance of God’s abiding presence as individuals and as a community of faith.
This presence helps us see that God’s redemption is more than a “saving from” harsh circumstances; it also is a “saving to” the fullness of life God intends for humanity.

Janice Catron invites us to explore Exodus and
Deuteronomy with her and see together the promise of what our relationship with God can be and the realities of what that relationship often becomes. It is God our Redeemer who, by grace, gives us the power to help ourselves and others live into the fullness God intends for us, and to move forward as people who have been set free.
