Tag Archives: The Land Between
Jeff Manion is the pastor of Ada Bible Church in Ada, MI. He recently spoke on The Land Between at Willow Creek’s Global Leadership Summit. In our interview with Jeff he unpacks the meaning of The Land Between and shares a message anyone in minstry would benefit from. If you’re not in the land between now, then you likely have been before, or will be in the future.
EC: What does The Land Between mean?
JM: When the Israelites leave slavery in Egypt and move towards the promise land, they spend significant time in the wilderness – and that’s what I’m calling the land between. It was a transitional space between their former home and future home. I use this imagery as a geographic metaphor for the undesired transitions we experience. These transitions would include financial setback, health issues, unemployment, family crisis, etc. This difficult space is where God does some of his deepest work.
