Read Ruth 1:6-18.
We were inspired by Ruth and Naomi’s commitment to walking a winding, uncertain path together. In much the same way, we accompany one another into unknowns, precarious terrains, and questions of faith. This Advent, as we walk together and are led by light toward the coming of God in the incarnation, may we feel the presence of steadfast love and kinship — just as Ruth and Naomi expressed for each other in a time of great need for a hopeful future.
Holy God, may we have a love and faith as strong as Ruth’s, no matter where we’re headed next. Amen.
