How’d the lesson go? Did you get some good participation? Did folks share their examples of memories?

I get to teach again next week and want to emphasize the 19th century LDS use of the Exodus theme, but I’m still working out the details on how to do that.

For example in American Slave religion the exodus story was a major theme. The spiritual “Go down Moses” is one of many illustrations.

In the 20th century civil right movement there is a great deal of Exodus immagery. The massive trilogy by Taylor Branch describing the history of the Civil Rights Movement and Martin Luther King had the titles “Pillar of Fire” “Parting the Waters” and ‘”At Cannan’s Edge”

In our own Church History the westward movement of the Saints from Illinois and Europe to the Great Basin was refered to as an ” Exodus to Greatness” Leonard Arrington titled his biography of Brigman Young “American Moses” for a good reason.
