Series The Book of Naomi

Pastor Torrey Robinson contends that the Old Testament book of Ruth is really Naomi's story. In this series of 5 conversations, the group finds that being angry at God isn’t a good place to end up, but it’s not necessarily the worst place to start, and actually may be a step in the right direction. Join the group for an interesting approach to one of our favorite stories in the Bible, with the son of long-time Discover the Word lead teacher Haddon Robinson, and discover that while we may not always see what God is doing, and we may even feel that He has abandoned us, He never does
