“THE FULL LIFE: The Story of Naomi in Three Acts”
At our Fall 2021 Retreat Ladies , Kelli will be sharing the story of Naomi from the book of Ruth. Through your own dramatic participation, the narrative will come to life in a fresh way, as we consider Naomi’s loss-upon-loss and the providential timing of God’s sovereignty and hesed (love).
