Scripture: Exodus 1:8-22
At the beginning of the book of Exodus, the Israelite people are facing deep suffering and struggle. They are bending under the heavy burden of slavery as a new Pharaoh comes to power. God chooses two unlikely individuals to challenge the powers that be – Shiphrah and Puah, a pair of Hebrew midwives! As we explore this story together, we will consider what happens when God works though unlikely candidates to bring about justice.
