#blogexodus 6: retell
This week, Solly watched Moana 6 times. Yes, you read that right.
It's his current favorite movie, and each day of Spring Break, he watched this movie.
It's a good one, and unlike some of the others, it does hold up.
It opens with the grandmother telling a story, one that she has clearly told many many times. It bears repeating, because she knows that its truth has been forgotten.
How is it that we can tell a story over and over again but forget to believe in it?
Is it like this with the Exodus? We tell the tale of slavery over and over again, and we tell of the joy of freedom -- but how many times in our history have we also forgotten it? Even today, how is it that we can be free when all are not?
We tell and retell, over and over. So we don't forget the tale.
It's also important to believe in it.
Want to join in? We're sharing #BlogExodus for the 2 weeks leading up to Passover. All you have to do is use the hashtag and there are suggested prompts on the graphic above (feel free to grab it). Maybe you just want to post on your Facebook or Twitter about these topics...or maybe you want to try #Exodusgram, posting photos related to these themes? I'll be posting my #blogExodus posts here, at this blog, my #Exodusgram pictures on my Instagram and also my tumblr site, imabima.tumblr.com, and who knows what else!? It's going to be a busy fortnight!
