7 PM, Far Hills Campus
 
Epiphany member Phyllis Scholp, PhD in Theology from University of Dayton, will lead an evening study on the Book of Ruth. All are invited! 
 
The Book of Ruth is a story of the friendship between two women, Naomi and her daughter-in-law, Ruth. A third, important character is Boaz, a kinsman of Naomi’s deceased husband. As we meet the people in this story — good and very caring people who live simple lives — there are lessons to be learned from their loyalty to one another and to God. The story underscores the loyalty and fidelity that bind the family together. As a foreigner (Ruth) is welcomed among God’s people, we are reminded that we are all children of God.
 
The class will consist of both presentation and class discussion. A handout of study questions will be given each week to help guide participants through the brief reading for the next week. Please bring a Bible to class. If you have any questions, please contact class instructor, Phyllis Scholp.
