Out of Egypt
Revisiting the Roots of African American Christianity
As a pastor/professor I have always wondered about Matthew 2:14: “Out of Egypt I have called my son!” What does this mean for me, for Africans, for African Americans? Does this help us re-member or reclaim the African roots to our faith as Christians? To reflect on these questions I went to Egypt—not once, but over and over again through the years.
These videos chronicle my most recent pilgrimage to Egypt, and they serve as my daily Vlog/journal of my ponderings and wrestling with the significance of Matthew 2:14 for African and African American Christian identity and spirituality. Not only do these videos chronicle my daily journey, they also share my theological reflections. The videos along with the images show you what I saw and felt on this pilgrimage. I invite you to journey with me.
