It’s Labor Day weekend, and our scripture text from the book of Exodus brings us a story of Moses at work shepherding his father-in-law’s herds. An ordinary day of carrying out his assigned duties becomes for Moses a day of blazing transformation when he realizes he is on sacred ground and is engaged in a conversation with God. Moses has wandered near the Horeb, “the mountain of God.” A bush that burns but is not consumed catches his attention. God calls Moses by name and then suggests that Moses take off his shoes because he is standing on holy ground. The story will help us reflect on ways that we might experience our own work as sacred.
September 3rd is the first Sunday of the month, so we will be sharing in Holy Communion at all three services. April’s sermon is titled, “Yes, You!” If you would like to read ahead of time the story of God commissioning Moses to lead God’s people to freedom, you will find it in Exodus 3:1-15.
See you in worship!
