The Book of Ruth: “Who Are You, My Daughter?”
We live in the days when terror and disasters haunt us from every corner of the globe, leaving us feeling powerless and shamefully insignificant. The book of Ruth is set in a similar context. Ellen Davis writes, “Against the background of deterioration and disaster on a national scale, the small domestic tale of Ruth, Naomi, and Boaz unfolds.” It all begins with a vulnerable refugee who is determined to protect and provide for an old woman whose life has been shattered. That one act stirs others to take similar risks… until new life is born, securing a future that endures forever. Will you take the risk and join the party?
