A Community of Misfits on a Mission

Faithful Resistance & Subversive Creativity

In this sermon, Pastor T. C. kicks off a new teaching series from Exodus chapter 1 as we follow along with the Revised Common Lectionary. By joining with hundreds of millions of other Christians around the world, we are seeking to discern what God’s Spirit is saying to the whole church. This message focuses on the faithful resistance and subversive creativity that is highlighted in the story of Moses’s birth. The two Hebrew midwives, Shiphrah and Puah demonstrate faithful resistance to the unjust empire of Egypt and Moses’s sister demonstrates subversive creativity as she navigates Moses’s adoption by Pharaoh’s daughter. This messages also introduces hesed (loyal-love) as a uniting theme of this series on the trustworthy character of God.
