The parking lot is full of shoppers caught up in the Christmas rush. You wonder how far you’ll have to walk. When suddenly you see a parking space open up near the door to the mall…and it’s yours! You’re carrying several parcels and the streetcar is packed during rush hour. As you struggle to keep your balance, someone gets up and you get their seat. You’re late for your reservations and it’s possible you’ll have to wait indefinitely for another table, when the hostess tells you they’re clearing one that’s by the window overlooking the harbour and you can have it. You’re counting your lucky stars. Others might call it ‘favour.’ For Ruth and her daughter-in-law Naomi, they experience favour of a different kind which goes far beyond luck or chance and shows us the heart of God. Join us as we continue in the book of Ruth as part of our 4-part Christmas series.
