Community Christian Church

In January’s Women’s Fellowship, we explored Queen Esther and her attributes which made her special. I encourage you to read the book of Esther and see how she used courage and wisdom to protect her people.

Esther ‘s Jewish name was ‘Hadassah,’ meaning ‘myrtle.’ Myrtle leaves release their beautiful fragrance when they are crushed. Myrtle trees can grow in stony places and can even spring up in the wilderness. They have very unique stripings or designs in their wood and grow back easily even when they are cut down low to its roots. Sometimes the branches of these trees intertwine and proceed to grow with each other for a means of support.

How do some of the myrtle tree’s characteristics embody our Christian walk as women, or embody you as an individual?
