Woven Together: Stories of Dissonance, Sacrifice and Liberation, March 11-13
Seattle First Presbyterian Church (1013 8th Ave Seattle)
Ruth and Naomi’s lives were woven together in a season of despair and displacement. Environmental trauma, poverty, forced migration, food insecurity, personal vulnerability, and power differentials continue to shape our shared human experience now as it did then. God interlaced the threads of Ruth and Naomi’s individual stories, each with unique messiness and unpredictability. Through God’s weaving, these women learned mutual sacrifice, found healing community, and shared liberation. Our threads – our stories – are made to be woven together on God’s sacred loom; each thread, unique and complex, spun out of God’s grace and love. Our call is to recognize the value of each thread in all its complexity, each thread’s necessity to God’s design, and our lifetime commitment to the work of freedom and faith.
Worship is free and open to all. Rev. Dr. Kelle Brown will preach 4:15 pm Tuesday, March 12.Subscribe
