As the book of Ruth comes to a close, all language of grief and death is replaced by words of joy and life, as Naomi – who has experienced emptiness like no one else – has become full in the Lord. But the ending of Ruth leaves some major questions: what does hope look like for us? How does God work to create hope for those of us who might never experience the fullness that Naomi experienced? What about those of us who don’t have the sort of loving friendship that Ruth gave to Naomi? In this talk, Philip reveals how God is always at work in the shadows to create hope for his people – a hope that cannot be lost; will never be grieved. A great talk for anyone experiencing the loss of hope as this year comes to an end.
