This past week was the last meeting for the Bible Study I was leading on the book of Esther. After two years of not teaching or leading, I have to admit that I truly enjoyed getting back into studying, preparing, and teaching each week.
We concluded the last session of our study by reviewing (and implementing) four parts of the Feast of Purim.
1. Feasting - we went to eat at Cheesecake Factory after the meeting!
2. Joy - we acknowledged the joy of the Lord in our lives.
3. Presents - I presented each of the ladies with a bookmark.
4. Gifts to the Poor - we collected funds to buy Bibles for women in villages in Kenya, Africa.
