When was the last time you felt like an outsider?
Maybe you’ve felt friendless, directionless, or hopeless. Or perhaps you’ve wondered if you even have a part to play in God’s big story.
The Old Testament book of Ruth travels from Bethlehem and back laying out one of the most flawless love stories ever written. In just 85 verses we follow the journey of two outsiders, Naomi and Ruth. It’s a story of layers; it’s a story of anticipation. We’ll encounter a tapestry of relatable ruin such as: loss, abandonment, bitterness, grief, risk, and suffering. But we also experience the beautiful redemption story of newness, protection, mercy, and hope restored.
