Water in the Wilderness
Rev. Dr. Jim Bennett

"Wilderness" is a place, in biblical rhetoric, where there are no viable life support systems. "Grace" is the occupying generosity of God that redefines the place. . . . divine grace, re-characterizes the wilderness that Israel now discovered to be a place of viable life, made viable by the generous inclination of YHWH. —Walter Brueggemann
