30 Days of Liberation: Day 9 – Our Stories, Ourselves

The essential ritual of the Seder is telling the Exodus story. We don’t only create our stories. In a way, our stories create us. We construct narratives to make sense of our lives, and those stories become the basis for how we perceive and relate to the world. The person shaped by the Exodus sees life through the lens of God’s loving care. The Exodus affirms that the trajectory of life is from degradation to dignity, that no one and no thing may be enslaved, that the most grievous sin is a hard heart, and that we are bound up in the destiny of a larger community, responsible to others.
