Remember this day on which you came out of Egypt, out of the house of slavery, because the Lord brought you out.
A bit dazed, still unsure of the Pharaoh’s intentions, a motley group of former brick makers has followed Moses into a new life. They will never forget this liberation which they will celebrate annually. This night as they stumble through the darkness toward freedom, they must have both fear and burgeoning joy about their future.
In our prayer, can we name our fears as well as our hopes for newness in this Lenten season?
