Winter comes to each of us at some time. Some winters are global, some personal, but all are powerful. And the question is all too common: will this winter ever pass? Is God near? Does he care? When God seems silent, is he?   

The story of Esther reveals this truth: though God may be quiet, he is quietly at work. There are times when we don’t see his hand, but Esther gives us this confidence: God is in the details. The details of protection. Deliverance. Hope. The winter of the soul won’t last forever. It’s a compelling story for the emotionally weary, for the person who feels outnumbered by foes, outmaneuvered by fate, and outdone by fear. It’s a reminder that God, in his kind providence, hears all the prayers of all the souls who are stuck in an Arctic February. 

Join us for our 12-week study through the Book of Esther this fall, September 12/13 - November 28/29. Together, we’ll be Searching for Springtime.
