The 2,500 year old story of Esther is actually incredibly relevant to us in our day. God's people found themselves as a religious minority living in a society that was dominated by spiritual and moral values in great contrast to theirs: ostentatious displays of wealth, sexual promiscuity, and unjust rule. How do we as God's people shine as lights in a dark culture like this? How do we trust the Lord when it is difficult to see him at work? We'll explore these themes and more as we dive into the book of Esther this fall.
