On the surface, the Story of Esther is the ancient story of how an entire people are spared from genocide through the courage of one woman. And beneath the surface, we find profound lessons for us all.
Within this story of sex, money and power we learn of awakened faith, re-discovered identity and incredible risk for the sake of what is right. This story teaches us how faith shapes who we are and how we are to live in hope even when it seems that God is hidden.
In Esther chapter 1 we begin our journey through this powerful story in a new series called Identity in Exile.
