9:00 AM • ADULT EDUCATION

Professor John Petersen facilitates a series of Adult Education classes, “Dealing with Loss,” on Sunday mornings via Zoom. This Sunday is week 3 of 4.

Remember to bring your Bible with you! (And you may want a pen/pencil and paper to take notes.)

“Ruth’s Example”

Text for Sunday, May 24: The book of Ruth, especially chapter 1.

Ruth is a beautiful and familiar short story. We will look at it in ways that tie into our theme of loss and how we respond to loss. Read through the whole book if you can. We’ll focus on the first chapter, and will go on in the story if we have time.  



Questions to ponder while you read.

  1. Tensions from losses provide important background and propel the plot. How do they affect the characters?
  2. What might have been the meaning and purpose of the story in the time it was written?
  3. Can you think of any modern parallels to the tensions, characters, or plot?

Happy reading!  See you Sunday.
