Moses on Mt Horeb – Richard Charlwood

3 February, 2020

For justice and loving kindness to be authentic, they need to be grounded in and come from a place of humility. Moses encounters God on Mt Horeb. He has to take off another’s skin; his sandals, and approach the Living Flame in his own skin; “naked” and vulnerable. So often we come before God covered by “another’s skin”; by layers of memory of past highs and lows. With the help of the Lord, Moses will enable justice for his people, but there is a vulnerability to walking barefoot. In our doing justice, loving kindness and walking humbly with God in our world, this vulnerability ensures our service remains grounded.
