This has been anything from renting out an ice rink and playing broomball to fun movie nights, all designed to build relationships with one another. Lately, we visited our local Boomers family fun center, enjoying go-kart racing and rock climbing.

One of the primarly lessons we receive from this story, found in the book of Esther, is that God is always in control.

God, first and foremost, wants us to listen to Him and to do what He asks us to do. All our good intentions are just dirty rags – “all our righteous deeds are like a filthy garment” says the prophet Yeshayahu 64:6. “The road to perdition is paved with good intentions,” goes the saying...
