movement in Jah people

"The miracle of Exodus is not whether or not the Red Sea parted. That is nothing more than a poetic conceit. The miracle of Exodus is that a group of people finally realized for themselves, for us, and for all time that you cannot stay in Egypt. Any personal commitment that is not toward growing and changing, any religious commitment that is not toward goals beyond one's own personal welfare, is a commitment toward slavery in Egypt." - John Hays Nichols
