NEW BIBLE STUDY on RUTH!!
Wednesdays, Aug 22 - Sept 3
Room #4 - 6:30pm
A story of human love reflecting and enacting divine love, the book of Ruth is a rich text—particularly as we recall the August days from our youth when farm fields flourished with the promise of an abundant harvest. Themes of emptiness and fullness abound in this little book: famine turning to abundant food, loss turning to love, bitterness turning to joy, barrenness giving way to birth.
And the improbable catalyst for all this is Ruth—neither king nor prophet—but a widow and a foreigner. This little, domestic tale is a story of God’s hesed: his faithfulness and covenant love, lived out in the lives of everyday, ordinary human beings, much like you and me.
