The start of a new year is a time to sort things out. As Stephanie and I packed out a chaotic cupboard I came across many pictures and objects that I had in my room as a student. Some of them were things I would happily put up on my walls today but others were a bit embarrassing! It caused me a slight identity crisis as I had to decide what to keep and what to bin. It seems that our personal histories just can't be trusted to define who we are today.
In this Sunday's sermon we'll see how Moses went through a much deeper identity crisis. As an Egyptian royal who was at the same time a secret Jew he had to work out who he really is - but this not from his own confused perspective, but from God's perfect point of view. Feel free to read Exodus 2 - 4 for the whole story.
