Hannah's Justice

November 19, 2006
West Side Moravian Church

Hannah's story is an example of narrative theology. This is a story about one particular woman who gave birth to one particular baby boy, but it tells us about our relationship to God. I want to hold up three lessons we can learn from the story of Hannah. I list them under the words Confidence, Constancy, and Conquering.

The story of Hannah is a narrative within which we can see something of what God is like. The story shows us that we can have confidence to come to God and to share our hopes and our distress with God. It shows that, if we respond with constancy to God's faithfulness, we may also join in God's victory.
