The Book of Ruth - Four Lessons by Steve Ray
Commentary by Steve Ray - presented by Fr. Scott Courtney.
Many books and movies that pass for “love stories” today seem like tales of lust, not love. However, the Book of Ruth is more powerful than any of them—and it’s only four chapters long. The Book of Ruth is truly a sacred love story. This book relates how a simple Gentile woman rose from the sudden death of her husband to a courageous trust in God.
As Steve Ray and Fr. Scott Courtney will show you, Ruth is very special for another reason: she is one of the four women mentioned in Jesus’ genealogy, as well as King David’s great-grandmother.
The Book of Ruth will be offered on Mondays (April 8, 22, 29; May 6, 2019), from 10:00 to 11:15 AM and Thursdays (April 11, 25; May 2, 9, 2019) from 6:30 to 8:00 PM in the Fr. Courtney Reception Room.
The cost of the program is $8. Register no later than March 19. REGISTER ONLINE NOW!! You may also contact Sister Diane at email@example.com or call her at 317-259-4373, ext. 256.
