Go Down Moses

June 10, 2020

Tell old Pharaoh, let my people go.”

That’s a line we’ll hear this Sunday from a spiritual composed by Black slaves to recall the promise made to free Hebrew slaves from Egypt. It was a song Black slaves sang to remind themselves and their owners that God will always seek freedom and redemption. It’s a song we sing to look for the vestiges of Pharaoh’s hard heart in our societal systems and in ourselves.  

This week we know ourselves to be “unraveled” by injustice, but we also know ourselves to be re-woven by God’s grace. We will look at the forces that caused Pharaoh to harden his heart and look at the practices that go in to softening our own hearts. As always, we will lean into grace.
