Carolyn will share special insight into the book of Ruth. Anyone seeking biblical guidance for how to follow Jesus into the workplace would probably never consider the Old Testament book of Ruth as a crucial place to start. Traditional interpretations of Ruth as a beautiful romance obscure its profound relevance to multiple dimensions of twenty-first century life, including the workplace.

The book of Ruth intersects business, leadership, and faith. Interactions between Ruth and Boaz focus, not on romance, but on legal and business matters. Bethlehem’s economy is in recovery mode after a prolonged and devastating famine. Ruth’s revolutionary gospel perspective on Mosaic Law sparks a transformative chain of events that blesses individual lives and the wider community and ripples out beyond what she would ever know to advance God’s purposes for the world.

Women who follow Jesus into the workplace will find much to ponder in this powerful resource.

Coffee and tea will be served. 

You may purchase Carolyn's books here. 

Hope you can join us, and bring a friend or two!

Registration ends Tuesday, September 25th at noon!
