“1 Now Moses kept the flock of Jethro his father in law, the priest of Midian: and he led the flock to the backside of the desert, and came to the mountain of God, even to Horeb. 2 And the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush: and he looked, and, behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed. 3 And Moses said, I will now turn aside, and see this great sight, why the bush is not burnt. 4 And when the Lord saw that he turned aside to see, God called unto him out of the midst of the bush, and said, Moses, Moses. And he said, Here am I. 5 And he said, Draw not nigh hither: put off thy shoes from off thy feet, for the place whereon thou standest is holy ground.” (Exodus 3:1-5 KJV)
- When we live our faith, people would have confidence in us.
- sharing our stories = multiply happiness + divide our sorrows
- Telling our stories lets us start healing.
- To live Jesus’ stories.
- evil = dismissal of the humanity of others
- the stale bread of life & droplets of grape juice
- juice from the cup of salvation
- The story of the Burning Bush makes little sense to me from a scientific point of view.
- Then again, religion tells us that God can do anything even breaking every scientific law.
