Soelle on exodus and exile

A Summer Series post.

Exodus means a break, setting out, leaving home.... Perhaps it was not so easy at all for Abram --who was not yet called Abraham-- to tell the difference between exodus and exile. One of the difficulties with life transitions is that feelings of home and feelings of homelessness can exist in one and the same heart. We should learn to pay attention to both.
