Esther 4:1-17--For such a time as this, Esther was made queen.
Matthew 5:13-16 -- Salt and light
God’s timing is always the right timing. God placed Esther in the kingdom at just the time that was necessary to save the Jews from Haman. We often need others to see what we cannot see for ourselves. Mordecai could see Esther’s role in God’s plan for the Jews’ salvation, where she could not.
Elim's weekly worship services focus on the Narrative Lectionary, which follows the sweep of the biblical story arranged in a narrative sequence to help us see Scripture as a story that has coherence and a dynamic movement. The arc of Elim's Biblical teachings are rooted in this understanding of scripture.
