Gay Lynn Voth spoke on “Co-creating a world with which we can live”. There are times we wonder where God is because things in our lives suddenly go wrong (cancer, divorce, job loss). Although the story of Esther does not mention God, it tells of a life-and-death struggle that was faced by the people of God, and how they were saved, both by Esther’s courage and (presumably) by God. When God created the universe, everything was pronounced as being “good”, even darkness. Evil eventually emerges, being that which is less than the good which originates from God. Like Esther, people today face battles between good and evil, some surrounding us, some within us. In a sense, we never overcome this struggle, but we can learn to realize that our victory is that we simply come through this on-going struggle. [JEK]
