Loyal To Family in Hope

The book of Ruth tells an incredible story. Ruth is a daring model of a woman who acts decisively in hope of creating a future for herself. She leads a life of faithfulness in the context of a society that normally had little place for a widowed, childless woman.  Ruth showed a fierce solidarity and loyalty to Naomi and ultimately to the God of Naomi as evidenced by her openness to follow Naomi to a foreign land. This Sunday we gather for worship and to reflect on the importance of family life by looking at the story of Ruth.
I hope to see you there!
