Moses was taking care of the flock for his father-in-law Jethro, the priest of Midian. He led his flock out to the western edge of the wilderness and came to Godâ€™s mountain, called Horeb.
The angel of God appeared to him in flames of fire blazing out of the middle of a bush. God saw that he had stopped to look. 2
What’s going on here? I can’t believe this! Why doesn’t the
God called to him out of the bush.
bush burn up?
Moses hid his face because he was afraid to look at God.
God said, Don’t come any closer. Take off your sandals, because you are standing on holy ground.
God said, I’m sending you to Pharaoh to bring my people, the Israelites, out of Egypt.
Who am I to go to Pharaoh and to bring the Israelites out of Egypt?
I’ll be with you. 3

OFFERTORY | Battle Hymn of the Republic Peter Wilhousky, arranger | Chancel Choir Mine eyes have seen the glory Of the coming of the Lord; He is trampling out the vintage Where the grapes of wrath are stored; He hath loosed the fateful lightning Of His terrible swift sword; His truth is marching on. Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! His truth is marching on. I have seen Him in the watchfires Of a hundred circling camps They have builded Him an altar In the evening dews and damps; I can read His righteous sentence By the dim and flaring lamps; His day is marching on. In the beauty of the lilies Christ was born across the sea, With a glory in His bosom That transfigures you and me; As He died to make men holy, Let us die to make men free; While God is marching on.
