Ruth

When a Man Loves a Woman

By Stacey Cox

Before Boaz could take Ruth to be his bride, certain obligations had to be met within the Levirate Law. A godly man, Boaz was determined to act in accordance with this law of redemption - even though it meant waiting and risking the loss of Ruth to a closer kinsman-redeemer.  Boaz's deep, personal love for Ruth shines through in this final chapter of the book. Love found a way. Join us Sunday for "When a Man Loves a Woman."

He Said "Yes!"

By Stacey Cox

Harvests are joyful times. We love a good harvest festival, whether it celebrates apples, pumpkins, or cotton coming in. The celebration would probably be greater if we realized all that a farmer goes through to bring in crop and so keep us alive. Last week we witnessed as Ruth agreed to the plan of Naomi, heading down to the harvest "job site" to propose that Boaz fulfill the law of the kinsman-redeemer. How shall this noble man respond? Join us Sunday for "'He said, Yes!'"

Love is in the Air

By Stacey Cox

After a long, hot summer, fall is making an appearance. There's a chill in the morning air. Signs of the season are beginning to appear: apples, pumpkins, and hay bales. Similarly, something is stirring in the air, as we transition from Chapter 2 to Chapter 3 of Ruth: love. The signs are becoming clearer. Unlike the falling temps of autumn, temps are rising in the budding romance of Boaz and Ruth in Chapter 3. Sunday we continue our study in Ruth with "Love is in the Air." Hope you will join us!
