What does Genesis 38 have to do with the story of Ruth?  Who has a connection to Judah and Tamar in our story today?  What exactly was Naomi asking Ruth to do and what were the potential ramifications?  Who is showing chesed in this chapter?  Erika takes the story today and puts it into modern terms.  

This chapter is filled tension and ends on a cliffhanger.  Erika takes us to the edge of the cliff and stops the story there for next week.
