This week it's part 2 of the story of Ruth & Naomi. We ended last Sunday with Naomi just arriving back home, much different than when she left. She is so different than she changes her name to Mara (bitter) because life has been bitter to her.
What does a bitter person do after so much has gone wrong? There is a term from harvesting grain called "gleaning." When harvesters go through a field of grain, they often get the easiest, tallest grain to harvest. However, some is left behind or missed in that first run-through. In the Bible, that left behind part was meant for those who were hungry so that they could gather it in a process called "gleaning."
The question our scripture presents to us this week is how does Naomi glean hope, especially through the person of Ruth?
Join us as we talk about gleaning hope.
