We look today at an important episode in the wilderness between Egypt and Canaan. The Israelites did not know what had become of Moses and in his absence they built an idol. This message explores what may have led them to make such a grievous mistake and suggests how we might increasingly avoid the same. Our best bet is simply this, to trust that we belong to God and that God is with us even when he is hard to discern. It is through faith in the promises of God that we are freed from fear, and only in the absence of fear, can we live the faithful lives to which we are called.
