The Rev. Al Zadig
What Lives Are We Then To Lead?
To answer this question and in our two Wednesday’s together, I’m going to take you first to the lavish life of King Solomon, yes that guy who got famous for asking God: “Just give me wisdom.” But his gigantic mess up would be for the simple fact that Solomon lets his women choose his gods rather than letting God choose his women. Speaking of women, on week two I’ll take you into the unbelievable and profound life of Queen Esther, who seems to have more common sense and courage than King Solomon and all the kings put together!! So join me for a deep plunge into the Old Testament for stories and life application you will never forget.
