Ruth: Finding Home

Ruth is a very short book of the bible— only four chapters! And for the next two weeks we will be looking at the story. It is a story centered around relationships, about creating home, and about the search for God in the midst of it all. Join us to learn more about our faith mothers!

Weekly Prayer in the face of the hurricane:

Holy God, we come to You as broken people. Our faith hangs in shambles as we see the destruction of Sandy on the east coast. We question why this storm happened in this way, we grieve the loss of life and land, and we look at our patterns of living and climate change. God, lift from us this burden, burdens of guilt and shame and hopelessness, and instill in us Your Spirit of hope. Call us to be living hope for the hopeless. Guide us to give our lives to You by living for others. Instill in us the knowledge that You have given us the ability to bless others, and call us to be a living blessing to others. In the name of Jesus the Christ, the True Hope, we pray. Amen. (Mindi Welton-Mitchell, Rev-o-lution)
