On November 8, 15, and 22, the Rev. Heather Sigler, Parish Associate, will lead us in a study of the book of Ruth, entitled Ruth: A Woman in an Alien Land. Read easily in one setting, the book of Ruth is a short book and is one of only two books in the Bible named for a woman. Ruth’s story raises significant ethnic, class, and gender issues which are relevant for us today. It’s a great book to study before the Advent/Christmas season because Ruth’s name appears in Jesus’ genealogy as recorded in the gospel of Matthew: “ … and Salmon the father of Boaz by Rahab, and Boaz the father of Obed by Ruth, and Obed the father of Jesse.” (Matthew 1:5)
On November 29 Pastor Sullivan will lead a forum, entitled The State of Hate in Pennsylvania. There will be a video online for you to see prior to the forum. During the forum we’ll discuss this important issue and the role of the church in confronting violence and hatred.
