This Sunday we continue our journey through the early years of God’s people, as told in the book of Exodus. Until now, the story has been seen mostly through the eyes of the patriarchs – Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Joseph. But Exodus takes a rather different look at things. The ancient Hebrews have become enslaved in Egypt. The Pharaoh is afraid that there are too many of them, and they may rise up against their masters. He imposes even more ruthless conditions on them, and orders that all newborn Hebrew boys shall be killed. In the midst of this terror and threat, a baby is born and given the name Moses. At this key moment, a number of women demonstrate courage and hope defying the king’s orders. They are the only reason the child survives, and the story continues. The text for Jonathan’s sermon is Exodus 1:8-2:10, and his title is “Sister Circle.”
