Moses was a Hebrew raised in the household of the Pharaoh of Egypt. He followed the call of God to free the Hebrew slaves held in Egypt and then lead them through the wilderness to the Promised Land. As people emerging from a pandemic wilderness, we can learn a lot from Moses’s story. It teaches us how to be a stronger community and a people of hope in an age when people seem more disconnected and worried than ever.
Moses was called by God to speak to the most powerful person on the planet at the time. Moses, with the assistance of his brother, Aaron, shared God’s words to the Pharaoh: ‘Let my people go.’ What we rarely learn is that the Bible tells us that Moses had a speech impediment. Still, God called him to be God’s voice. How are we called to speak on behalf of God in order to build the community of faith despite all the ways the world tells us that we are ineligible to be that voice?
