Ever heard of a creative assassination?
Last week in Barrie (and this weekend in Orillia) We launched the series “Your Big Moment” centered on the biblical book of Esther.
In the book, king Xerxes is a central character. What you might not have known, is that in the video game Assassin’s creed, Xerxes is eventually assassinated by what’s called the hidden blade.
In the game the hidden blade was concealed along the forearm when not in use. To use the blade, assassin’s actually had their ring finger cut off so that the hidden blade could protrude through the gap when extended for assassination.
It’s dramatic, and so is the book of Esther. It’s got twists and turns that will surprise and shock you.
Join us in reading along, our homework this week was to read the whole book, and it just takes 25 minutes. It might just give you the excuse you need to put your feet up this weekend.
It’s going to be a great weekend! We’ll see you Sunday!
Your Big Moment – Part 2 – Defining Moment | Carey Nieuwhof
In the story of Esther, we meet several key characters, all of whom will be remembered for something. What do you want to be remembered for? Contrary to what most people want to believe, your character in the little moments determines your legacy in the big moments. If you’re wise, you’ll seek to define what defines you.

Your Big Moment – Part 1 – Just An Ordinary Day | Carey Nieuwhof
Most days, life seems quite ordinary. In fact, some days God seems entirely absent. If you can relate to that, you need to meet Esther. Sometimes the little moments are more significant than you think. And you can trust that God is present, even when God seems absent. The book of Esther gives us a surprising example of how that is true.
