Fr David Reegon, OFM Cap, gave a preview on the Book of Exodus at the Church of St Francis of Assisi on May 12.

There were 148 participants from different parishes who came for the introduction before the programme begins at the end of May.

The session commenced at 8.00pm with Praise and Adoration led by Fr Valentine Gompok OFM, Cap. Parish priest Fr Paul Cheong OFM Cap then gave an exaltation on the Word of God.

The participants were captivated by two engaging sessions that explored the Exodus story through video clips and group reflections. The journey began with a glimpse into the past, starting from Genesis. Using the 10 keys, Fr David unlocked the Israelites’ bondage and oppression under the Egyptians.

The focus then shifted to the present, exploring the seven keys to redemption. Through this session, the participants witnessed the undeniable hand of God in the deliverance of His people, emphasising the power and presence of God in their liberation. Looking toward the future, the session explored the call of Moses by God to lead the Exodus of His people. Despite Moses initially resisting God’s call, giving excuse after excuse, it became evident that no one can escape God’s purpose and call.

The participants were left with a deeper appreciation of the Exodus story and its relevance in their lives, recognising God’s unfailing love, power, and faithfulness throughout the past, present, and future.

Fr David provided a glimpse into the Book of Exodus during the talk. However, those eager to delve deeper into the subject were invited to attend the upcoming Five Exodus Studies at the SFA parish.

These in-depth sessions will be held from May 26 to June 23, from 8.00pm to 10.00pm. Fr David promises to unveil more profound insights and teachings from the Book of Exodus during these extended study sessions, offering a richer understanding of its significance.
