I’m fascinated by all the leaving in the book of Genesis. For all the settled-ness of the first two chapters, the rest of the narrative is on pilgrimage, and even at its conclusion (granted, not really the conclusion as Genesis is one-fifth of a larger whole), the people of God are not yet settled into the land of Promise.
That story feels like my everyday. The unmistakability of God’s promises doesn’t undo the muddled quality of life as it moves forward.
