Week 12: March 19 – March 25

This week we get to read the powerful story of Queen Esther. Please carve out an hour to sit and enjoy these eight chapters and the larger than life characters.

We will soon be approaching Palm Sunday, so these readings from Esther and Matthew are especially timely as we consider the courage and trust it takes to live faithfully as God’s covenant people.

Even if you have missed some of the Living in The Story readings, I encourage you to spend time with Esther this week.
