Are you facing tough choices in life? Join us for this season of Perspectives FUMCSD Pastors Podcast as we dive into the Journey of the Hard Things. The women clergy of First Church in San Diego unpack the story of Moses from Exodus and tie it back to the challenges faced through history and modern life.

In this episode, join Rev. Hannah and Rev. Brittany as they examine Exodus chapters 1 & 2, featuring some truly witty and wise women who defied oppressive rules to save children from death,

From Exodus to the modern day, women in various positions have had to employ wit, wisdom, and courage and commit acts of desperation to save their children from enslavement and danger. Which makes one start to think of God in a new light – including that of God the Mother. Hear what Rev. Hannah and Rev. Brittany have to say about this and more.

We recommend these additional theological and social resources:

  • Christian Old Testament: Exodus, chapters 1-2
  • Grace and Responsibility by John Cobb Jr.
  • Beloved by Toni Morrison
  • The Shack by William P. Young
