Already here I am reminded that I do not know your name. It happens often, not just in the Bible, but through history. Names are forgotten, left out. More…Continue

Until recently you have been a rather unknown name to me, and from the horrible account in Judges 9 I understand that we could have lost…Continue
Finally, after reading about you so many times I get this opportunity to send you some lines.
I first met you when I was…Continue
I hope this email over time and space doesn’t find you too busy. I am actually impressed by the description that you as a leader used to sit under the palm tree. Most leaders in my context today seem to be always on the move,…Continue

Dear Moses (email@example.com),
Let me take this opportunity to write to you over time and space, hoping to reach you right there at the burning bush. I have often used this burning bush story to talk about leadership.
