So everybody enjoyed reading Esther's story. It does read like a fascinating novel, doesn't it? No one seemed to mind that it was nine chapters long. That's good because our next reading is pretty long as well.
We are reading about the unnamed Shulammite Woman in the Song of Songs chapters 1-8 which are linked here. This reading will be quite different from any we've done so far. It will read less like a novel and more like a script for a Shakespearean play ... only it was mostly likely written by King Solomon. Its quite interesting reading!
Post your 'I did it" here when you are done reading.
As well as any prayer requests or updates you have.
My prayer request is for a retreat I'll be speaking at this weekend. I'll be out of town Friday through Sunday and will be teaching four sessions. Please pray for my preparation time this week, for the women attending, for safe travel, and for my family who will be juggling a busy schedule here at home in my absence. Thanks, friends!
