The Girls in the Reeds

Exodus 1:8-14, 22; 2:1-10

12th Sunday after Pentecost - Year A

January 31, 2016

The Rev. Dr. Anna Carter Florence (PCUSA)

What a perfect story. Pharaoh makes chaos, mother makes ark. Princess finds baby, sister brokers deal. Baby saved, Pharaoh foiled. A perfect story, and great roles for girls, I might add.

That's important, because this is a story about what happens when the young people are in charge. The second is that without this story, without these two girls in the reeds, there is no Moses. There is no Exodus. There is no liberation for the people of God, and there won't be unless the parents get off the stage, and the young people set things in motion.

Some people fake their death, and others are taken with criminal intent. There is a military category: missing in action. Amelia Earhart may be the most famous missing person in American history.
