Hannah and the Importance of Private Prayer

August 12, 2017

Hannah is a relatively unknown Old Testament figure we encounter in the early chapters of 1 Samuel. Her experience of agony and desperation, however is well known to anyone who's lived long enough in a broken world. It is because of this shared experience and Hannah's approach to it, that us moderns can learn a great deal from this woman.

Esther: The Silent Presence of God

August 10, 2017

Schemes, Beauty Pageants, Politics, Genocide, Sex & Alcohol... The Old Testament book of Esther has it all. As a matter of fact it reads like a Game of Thrones style soap opera, full of morally questionable figures. Even the so called 'good guys' aren't very kosher (Pun intended)! Yet through the mess and without being mentioned - the silent hand of God is at work. Not through plagues or sea openings, but in the everyday stuff.
