We listened to the story of Moses when he was looking after his father in law’s sheep. He travelled further than normal and discovered a burning bush which was still whole and not disintegrating. A voice came out of the bush and said, “Moses take your shoes off, this is holy ground.” The bush told Moses to take the Hebrews from their land in Egypt to somewhere safe. Moses didn’t want to do it but the voice reassured him. The voice was God.
The story tells us that God has plans for us, and sometimes it is through an unexpected event that we discover what they are. Reverend Meg recalled when God spoke to her and wanted her to become a Reverend. It took a while for His words to take effect but now she relishes what she does for a living.
