On September 27 the Rev. Bri Desotell, pastor of First United Methodist Church, Ypsilanti, preached a sermon titled, “Hopeful.” It is a powerful and personal meditation on Exodus 2:1-10.
She relates the life of Moses to today’s headlines. The story of Moses is “so sweet and so familiar that we can forget why this story happened at all,” Bri says. “But Moses’ mother didn’t just wake up one day and think, Hey, if I play my cards right, my little boy could be a prince! No, the reason Moses ended up on that river – is because a scared and power-hungry ruler ordered all the Hebrew baby boys to be thrown into the river and drowned.”
