I want to share a story with you. It's a story with which you're probably
familiar. It features a reluctant hero who only gets involved in the
conflict when there are no other options. The setting is a convoluted
world with muddle morals and vague ethics. The characters' relationships
are hopelessly tangled, and families are torn apart. And in the midst
of it all is a God who remains silent and hidden. The historical account
of Esther is full of tumult, upheaval, and crisis. In short, It's Complicated,
and it's not unlike our own befuddled life stories. Are you frustrated
with your personal narrative? Are you struggling to find God? Are
you facing a crisis that refuses to be wrapped up in a neat little package?
Is a fairy-tale ending out of the question? Are you an unlikely hero with
a checkered past and questionable qualifications? Then go ahead and bring
your bedraggled life with you as we dive into our sermon series on the book
of Esther entitled It's Complicated. Sundays, March 2015, at 10 AM.
