advice from Ruth


Advice from Ruth


Rend your clothes





Wail in sorrow and in denial,


Let no one deny you your pain

Let no one deny you your mourning

Let know one deny you your fears


Empty yourself into the ocean


And then in pain,


rise again,

Clear eyed from bathing in the salt water seas of your soul


And Remember ….

You are not alone.



“Wherever you go, I will go.

Wherever you live, I will live.

Your people shall be my people.

Your God is my God.

Where you die, I die,

And there I will be buried.”
But ah Ruth, until that time –

We shall live. Together.


We shall live together.


For I have vowed to hold all God’s people in my heart.


What is in your heart?
