  • God's Law: The way things are

    We read in Psalm 119:8, “I will observe your statutes.” I like the Psalmist’s clear communication of what he “will” do.

  • Racism: The next great challenge for humanity

     Exodus begins with a brief description of how the Egyptians, out of fear, forced the Hebrew people into slavery. In Exodus 1:8-11 it is written, “Now a new king arose over Egypt, who did not know Joseph. He said to his people, ‘Look, the Israelite people are more numerous and more powerful than we. Come, let us deal shrewdly with them, or they will increase and, in the event of war, join our enemies and fight against us and escape from the land.’ Therefore they set taskmasters over them to oppress them with forced labor.”
