Ruth

Hello!  Today's reading in our Lenten Series Creation to the Cross: The Story OF God's people, BY God's people we hear about Ruth and her family, during the same period of the judges that we heard about yesterday.  Today's reading is around 17 minutes.  This is actually quite a sad story, as we hear about a woman who loses not only her husband, but her father-in-law as well.  Poor and challenged in nearly every cultural way possible, Ruth could have simply given up, but instead turns to hard work, and cared for not only herself, but also her mother-in-law.  Through the kindness and hard work she showed to all around her, she ended up meeting Boaz, and starting a new romance that is definitely part of our shared history.
