In a time of economic difficulty and social pressure a young Jewish family moves from their homeland into a neighboring country in order to survive. However after both their sons marry foreign women tragically they are killed, and as a result the family is forced to leave. In the midst of tragedy the underpinning theme of this story is the journey into closer community. As hard times hit, there is a desperate need to come together and support one another. So we invite you to join our community over the coming weeks as we follow the story of Ruth, a story that follows Ruth’s journey into a new community.
As a special treat for the spring we have put together a knock-out line up of speakers to help us better understand the story of Ruth. These speakers include Aaron White, Gregory McConnell and Major Roxanne Jennings. We’re very excited about this series and we hope you join us every Sunday and discover something new about Ruth and about community.
Abundance amidst famine by Lt. Peter Lublink
Famine, war, divorce… there is a lot of pain in our world. Yet in the midst of it as a community if we come together in honesty and faithfulness we can experience unprecedented joy. Check out week one of our series on Ruth.
Crisis by Major Roxanne Jennings
Ruth and Naomi are settling into a new life and having to face the daily struggles with finding work and fitting in. A great preach by Roxanne Jennings on dealing with crisis.
Relationships by Lt. Alison Lublink
Relationship talk is not just something for the ladies. Its something we all generally need to work on, that is if we ever interact with other human beings for any reason. Alison takes the second half of Ruth 2 and breaks it down nicely as some pretty solid modern take aways. Have a good listen.
