HIS-story, Part 4: A Nation Born in Water and Fire (Exodus - Deuteronomy, Part 1)


With the crashing down of a mountain of water, the people Israel suddenly became their own nation, freed from slavery in Egypt.  Stretching for miles before them lay... the wilderness of Sinai. What would God do to make them his own special people in the desert?  How would they respond?  And in your own life... what is the purpose of "wilderness," "the desert" and other dry times?
