10: A Charter of Freedom // 5&6

The 10 commandments are not a simple list of rules on which God basis his relationship with us.  They are a charter of freedom for a new community which is already in relationship with God. This week we look at commandments 5&6.  These verses are often taken as a given.  On closer inspection we find that in our nation, community, and homes we regularily struggle to maintain the freedoms that 5&6 afford.
