Gleaning For Love

In the biblical story of Ruth and Boaz, we find that Boaz becomes Ruth’s saviour with the simple, but
hard work of gleaning. Gleaning is one finds and collects everything that’s useable after the initial
harvest. In the story Boaz is asked to “stretch his pride” and ask for help to free Ruth. As we engage in
the work of generosity of service in our congregation and our faith, we are asked the simple question
– are we willing to be gleaned for love?
