The Tabernacle

Bible Text: Exodus 26-30 | | March 21, 2021

I've gotta be honest with you. When I read the stuff in the Old Testament about the tabernacle ("make it 30 cubits tall and use purple thread for the ephods"), I feel a little lost. It sounds so ... not us. But when I read it this time, God showed me ... wait for it ... circles! Seeing all that detail of the building of the temple as concentric circles of care ... well, that completely changes how I understand the very first building God designed to house his presence. I now see how the building of the tabernacle was really the building of a community, which is really the building of our own connection to God. And now, I can't wait to share all this with you on Sunday so we can talk together about what it means to be the tabernacle of God. ~ Carolyn
