Session: “Colliding with Destiny”
Everyone likes to talk about Ruth meeting her Boaz and the tremendous life she had once she met him. We hardly ever discuss the things she had to encounter on the road to destiny. No one talks about how she lost her husband and became a stranger in a new land. No one talks about the depression, grief, and struggles she had to face before she learned to live again. Sarah Jakes explores the book of Ruth in a new and refreshing way, opening you up to the possibility that maybe these moments in life that come to break us are really just stepping stones to help us Collide with Destiny. Don’t stop living, don’t let the pain kill you, and convince you that you no longer have a destiny. You’ve just got to get on the right track, choose to believe, dare to try again, and you’ll “Collide with Destiny” too.
Sarah will be signing copies of Colliding With Destiny on Friday, August 30th from 1-2pm in the Starbucks Literary Cafe
