Looking at our text from Exodus, we encounter five brave women who stood against injustice, defying authority in the name of God's greater purpose. The stories of the midwives, the mothers, the sisters, and the wives of Moses' early life resonate with the stories of women today who continue to break barriers, defy expectations, and demand a place at the table. The spirit of empowerment runs like a thread connecting the past to the present, inspiring us to be agents of change in our own lives and communities. This Sunday, we will explore some of these unexpected threads of connection - from the past to the present.
