Starting this week, we will leave behind the world of Matthew’s Gospel and venture through the wilderness with the Exodus story of freedom. Matthew’s Gospel draws on Exodus for much of its imagery, including the view of Jesus as the new Moses. Therefore, our Exodus series hopes to illuminate the pilgrimage of liberating love and life we are on with Christ.
During Tuesday night prayer the other week, a member shared with us that her daughter tested positive for COVID. This week, her son tested positive as well. Her daughter currently lives in Canada and her son lives in France, making her concern sharper given the great distance. May we hold all of them in our hearts and keep them in our prayers.
I look forward to sharing worship with you tomorrow.
