As the celebration of Passover reminds us of the Exodus of God’s people from Egypt, surely the sight of the Red Sea parting comes to mind. This Bible story, among many others including Jonah and Samson, was told through the above tile mosaic, unearthed on the floor of an ancient synagogue at the Huqoq archaeological site in Israel.

As we remember God’s deliverance from Pharaoh and his army thousands of years ago, we continue to pray for His protection over His children today – in the Holy Land, in Ukraine, and all around the world.
