Martin Luther King Jr. prophetically challenged our nation with the dream that everyone would be respected and loved regardless of who they are. It is because everyone is created in the image of God. However, it seems that we still witness racism that deeply divides our country with racial prejudice often dehumanizing certain groups of people. In recognizing such broken reality, we invite our congregation to study together how God listens to the cries and prayers of the oppressed as in the Book of Exodus. We meet Moses who was living his life happily as he had nothing do with the suffering of his people. We read how God met him at the burning bush, sent him back to Egypt, and delivered God’s children from slavery. This study will help us to be attentive to the racial injustice of our society and how we can attempt to dismantle it as God’s people who are called to justice and righteousness. We invite you to join us for a time of discernment and fellowship.
