Exodus 13:21-22: “21 The Lord went in front of them during the day in a column of cloud to guide them and at night in a column of lightning to give them light. This way they could travel during the day and at night. 22 The column of cloud during the day and the column of lightning at night never left its place in front of the people.”
Tonight the clouds provide a cover over us here in Ashland. I’m always reminded of the passage from Exodus, the visible reminder of God’s steadfast commitment to God’s people. And as the clouds cover Ashland, so does God’s presence watch over us.
