Midweek Focus: What Next?
Our studies of the Sermon on the Mount in Matthew Chapters 5, 6 and 7 concluded on April 5. Midweek Focus now takes a four-week break, firstly for Holy Week and then for the Chalmers Lecture series to be held in the Philip Hall on April 19 and 26 and May 3. Our meetings resume on Wednesday, May 10, at 7 pm when we will commence a six-week series on the Old Testament Book of Ruth. A warm welcome awaits anyone interested in sharing in these times of midweek fellowship.
Though only four chapters in length, the Book of Ruth has long been recognised - even by those who don’t believe the Bible - as a literary masterpiece. But for all its literary beauty and excellence, it is so much more than that. It is, for example, about a loving relationship between a young woman and her mother-in-law. It is also about a young maiden from Moab and the man who loved and redeemed her. It is about a romance that triumphs over racial and religious prejudices. We learn from example that the Book of Ruth is about real, genuine love. This series will also teach us that God has a special place in His Word for women, and for the unique, miraculous role they play in His plan. Perhaps nowhere else in God’s Word is a woman’s strength of character and purity of motive more evident than here. Most importantly, the Book of Ruth is a story of God’s purpose to redeem all those who will put their trust in Him, simply because He loves them.
Meetings are held at 21 Barry Road on Wednesdays from 7 to 9 pm. For more information about Midweek Focus, contact Graham Suttie on 01241 852614 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
