Nov. 4, Rev. Sue Browning, “Carrying Forward Our Past.”
Mar 31, Rev. John Ames, “Ruth – The Handmaiden of the Lord.”
Rev. John Ames will explore the Old Testament story of Ruth. Her journey from her own country to Israel is a testimony in favor of inclusivism in ancient Israel as opposed to the exclusive theology that tended to prevail. Ruth, a foreign, non-Jewish woman, was welcomed into Israel and became an ancestor of King David — and of Jesus.
