During our evening services in November, we will be studying the book of Ruth together. It’s a book for our Covid moment: this is a story that opens with difficulty and tragedy. It’s a story about a real family, in a real place, facing really hard times. It’s set in the context of a nation far from God.
But this is a Biblical story. So the question arises, where is God in the midst of difficult and dark days? What is he doing? And can he bring hope and new life amidst very real losses?
Let’s take this opportunity to immerse ourselves into this much-loved Biblical book, and hear what God has to say to us today, through a 3,000 year old story full of loss, love and hope.
