It's crunch time for Esther! Will she act courageously in response to Haman's plan or just keep quiet? Simon shows us that courage comes from identity, not the other way round.
The book of Esther is full of parties! However, the motivations for them are not the same. Mahvash looks at this final party, as God's people celebrate God's faithfulness and righteousness.
Lou explains how this passage reminds us that God is working throughout history and we are called to trust him and be courageous.
As we read of Haman getting his 'just rewards' how are we to respond? In this event, there is something for us to learn about God, the world, ourselves and how we can live differently.
The events of our lives are not simply down to the fate of the universe but are rather the loving work of God. Chris helps us to see from this passage that we can trust He is at work even whilst we sleep!
