As we begin this series in the book of Esther pay attention to what goes unnoticed within the story. God is not mentioned in this book, but yet His sovereignty is within every turn in the story. Tonight we wrestle with pushing back on the notion to seek conformity or isolation and instead pursue a 3rd way – the way of Jesus and obedient living and seeking to be an influence of good. Esther’s story is one where God is building bravery. He may at times, seem silent, but God is never absent.
