Wildflowers to observe Purim

Friday, March 21, 2008

EUREKA SPRINGS -- The Biblical feast of Purim will be the theme of a special worship service Friday evening, March 21, at Wildflowers Christian Chapel, in Eureka Springs, according to Wayne Mishler, pastor.

The service is being presented by Restore The Way Ministries, a Messianic Jewish and Christian congregation that meets weekly at the Chapel, located at 6789 Hwy. 62 East.

The service begins at 7 p.m. The public is invited. Admission is free.

The highlight of the evening will be a movie on the story of how Esther, a beautiful Jewish girl, became queen of a vast kingdom reaching from India to Ethiopia, and endangered her own life in a heroic attempt to save her people from genocide.

"The feast of Purim celebrates a great victory that saved the Jewish people from annihilation and preserved the bloodline of Jesus the Messiah," said Mishler, founder and pastor of Restore The Way Ministries.

"If it had not been for Esther, Jesus might never have been born," Mishler said. "Christians have every reason to celebrate Purim along with their Jewish brethren."

The story is told in the Biblical book of Esther.
