The children Israel were led through the desert by a pillar of cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night.
When they were stopped, the cloud covered the tent, i.e. the tabernacle, in which God was present and worshipped.
“Whenever the cloud lifted from over the tent, then the Israelites would set out… “ Numbers 7:17a
The “cloud lift” is a design element in the east-meets-west California Craftsman style in which our worship space was built. We see it all over that space.
It reminds us that we are there to worship and then we depart to accomplish the mission God has given us: to introduce people to new life in Jesus Christ that grows into enthusiastic Christian living.
Where is God present now? “...you also are built together spiritually into a dwelling place for God”. Ephesians 2:22.
We accomplish our mission wherever God leads us.
