Sermon Excerpt

On this Third Sunday of Advent, we are learning from and about Ruth, who is the third woman named in Jesus' family tree (Matthew 1:1-17). Ruth the Moabite is a powerful reminder that God's love is expansive, inviting and including in the story of Christ any and all who seek the well-being and shalom of the community. One need not even change their cultural or ethnic identity to be part of God's family.
