You can find her story here.

Her feast tells us that the winter Ember days are upon us–beginning tomorrow.

Jesse Tree
Ruth, Ruth 3:7-11
Suggested symbol: sheaf of grain

A foreigner
so taken byruth
Naomi’s way of life
that she would follow her,
forsake her people,
and her people’s gods,
in poverty,
with no reward
except to come to know
the God
Who animated her,
Ruth gave herself
completely
to Naomi’s
guiding hand.
And lying
at the feet
of Rahab’s son
beside the threshing floor
she was received
into the line
of God’s Anointed One.wheat

Lord, if I give up
everything
I have lost nothing
because I have
You.
