It is a joy to have one of our former ministers, Rev. Julie Richardson, preaching at both of our Sunday services this weekend. Julie is a gifted writer and eloquent speaker and she will share a meaningful message with the congregation. Her sermon title is “On Your Left.” The text she has selected is Ruth 1:7-18.
Julie has started a new position with the Pension Fund of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), which she is really enjoying. Although the “formal” office is Indianapolis, she is able to do much of her work at home in Louisville. We are grateful for her ministry to the “larger” church.
As you prepare for worship, I invite you to read the text and reflect upon it. In fact, it would be enriching for you to read all of Ruth—it is only four chapters—and it will help if you don’t come to church Ruth-less!
