The Hunger Games

In a scene early in the movie, The Hunger Games, Katniss volunteers as tribute in place of her little sister. It's an act of bravery and love. Katniss is taking on a risk that may end in death. Esther was another young woman who stepped forward at the risk of death. Her story though, isn't fiction. Esther's words, "If I perish, I perish," remind us of another who volunteered as tribute: Jesus approaches the King and stands there in our place. God gave his Son so that we might not perish. Join us for this mini series from the Book of Esther. June 3, 10 a.m.
