Samantha Field: Re-Reading Ruth


This episode is sponsored by Faith in Public Life. Please sign the Faith in Public Life petition to end gun violence.

Samantha Field grew up in a Christian fundamentalist cult, but escaped as a young adult. Now, she writes about being a bisexual woman and abuse survivor, exploring intersectional feminism and liberation theology. Her devotional “Re-Reading Ruth” has been featured in Our Bible App. This 5-day devotional explores the book of Ruth through several different ways, taking a closer look at what it says about women, story and myth, immigrants and refugees, and systematic oppression.

Our friends at Faith in Public Life are circulating a petition to push Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and every Senator to act on gun violence and end mass shootings. Senators must act now to free us from fear: Our family, friends and neighbors shouldn’t have to live in danger. Sign the petition.
