Going Old Testament this Sunday

I am really enjoying a re-read of the Book of Esther today.

Refresher for ye socks who haven't read this text in a while: King Artaxerxes II of Persia marries a Jewish woman named Esther. She helps topple the king's chief adviser Haman, who is bent on persecuting her people.

These Old Testament stories are so much better than the pulp fiction that is generally available in this corner of heaven.
