Good Morning, Preachers and Pals! This is my first Sunday back after a two week stay-cation and I plan to preach on Exodus! Love this story. A colleague of mine, an OT scholar, uses this story to talk about topics like, women in the Bible. She makes reference to the fact that they are midwives and named, and responsible for saving the Hebrew people by their act of defiance and faithfulness. She has a great reflection on the text, which I only remember vaguely. Anyway, you can find the readings here and more discussion from the RGBPTuesday Lectionary discussion. I admit, though, that it's been a busy first week back, and while I have read the texts and spent time thinking about them and praying with them, I really don't know where I am going with them.
What about you? What text are you using, and where are you going with your thoughts?
I have homemade oatmeal peach bars made with fresh Michigan peaches and a delicious apple molasses whole-wheat breakfast bread - both hearty, healthy, and great with coffee or tea. Please, join the party, we're here to help with sermon ideas, kids time ideas, prayers of support, a joke perhaps if a good laugh is needed? Pull up a chair and grab a mug!
