The journey from chaos to fulfillment begins...
The Passover story ends with the Israelites escaping across the Red Sea and, after much turmoil and struggle, finally gaining the prize—to roam the desert.
I’ve often felt this was a crummy resolution to the Passover story. And that’s because this is the beginning of the story, not the end.
And it is the beginning of our story, too, not the end. A story that culminates with Pentecost, the Jewish holiday of Shavuot, when God gave the Torah to Israel at Mount Sinai, and when he sent the Holy Spirit upon those gathered in the upper room.
A short, inspirational book, Walking in the Moment between Tick and Tock is a collection of three inspirational essays, looking at this transforming story of personal development, between Passover and Pentecost, between Pesach and Shavuot, integrating insights from both Christian and Jewish thinkers. It tells the story of these holidays as linked parts of the same narrative, two ends of a single span.
