Have you ever felt like you are living in the midst of a season where God felt distant or not even there? Have you ever made the decision to go your own way rather than follow the Lord's leading? Have you ever got to the place where you knew you either had to turn back towards God or continue going down your own path?
These are the kind of questions we are faced with in the first few verses of the book of Ruth. And yet Ruth is an amazing short story that shows us God's sovereign care for his people in his unfolding plan as well as his desire for sinners from every nation, tribe, tongue, and language to become a part of his family through faith in Jesus Christ.
We hope you will join us as we begin a new study through the book of Ruth on Sunday, August 14, 2022, at 10am at the Cooper St. YMCA. We hope you will consider with us whether or not we are following the Lord, whether or not we have turned back to the Lord, whether or not we have made the Lord our God, whether or not we are trusting the Lord in our everyday lives, and whether or not we can see the Lord's hand on our lives.
As the 2022 school year and fall season begin, we are beginning a new Bible reading plan that will take us through the Old Testament's Wisdom literature (except the Psalms): Job, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, and Song of Solomon. We'll also be reading through the story of Christ's coming, life, death, resurrection, ascension, and proclamation to all nations in Luke and Acts. Read along with us!
