When the child grew up, she brought him to Pharaoh’s daughter, and she took him as her son. She named him Moses, “because,” she said, “I drew him out of the water.” Exodus 2:10
Do you know the story of how you got your name? In movies and comic books the “origin story” gives the backstory of a character, typically explaining how they became a hero or a villian; how they got their powers; and how they got their name.
This Sunday we get the origin story of Moses. We learn about the circumstances of his birth, the strong, brave women that protected him, and how he gets his name. As is usually the case, there are important seemingly minor characters that play a vital role in the shaping of the hero to come.
I hope you will join us this Sunday at 6 pm at Trinity Commons for Church Outside. Remember to wear a mask, use the online bulletin, and dress comfortably. You can also join us online via Zoom.
