The sabbatical is over and it’s time to get preaching again. We will preach a three-week series on Ruth, beginning next Sunday. I will preach the first and third and Pastor Mark will preach the second. We are following the Narrative Lectionary, but are one week behind. We’ll have to truncate chapters three and four into one sermon.
This is a wonderful little story of hope in the midst of despair, chaos, and anarchy. I invite you to browse the Ruth Page in the Bible Bookshelf. Kathryn Schifferdecker offers an excellent commentary here. More thoughts on Ruth to come…What’s your take on this story?
