Please comment on anything you'd like to share before we meet on Thursday at Debbie's home. Happy studying!
The acrostic PURIM
In the study tonight, Roberta had wanted to cover the acrostic PURIM for chapter 1 but we ran out of time.
Remember Beth mentioned this acrostic exercise will be somewhat subjective. At times someone else may have different points listed than you do. She is having us do this exercise to enhance the learning process and to help illustrate Purim's truest message: the providence of God . These are some of the things I listed for chapter one. Please comment and add additional ones for this chapter and continue throughout the study. Read more

In the study the first point she wants us to consider is that it is tough being a woman in another woman's shadow .Read more
Welcome and Prayer Requests
Welcome to the Esther Bible study group! Thank you for going through the process to get here. Sometimes that can be very frustrating. My wireless Internet connection often drops which can cause all sorts of problems. I hope you find the interaction here a great addition to your study of the book of Esther. It is another way to share our portions in Christ and as Beth mentioned, another way to receive the whole Megillah!Read more
