our Faces Of Faith series with Queen Vashti (Esther 1-2:17)
Having the bravery and confidence to stand up to an inappropriate request from a superior is both paramount to the moral foundation of society, and extremely difficult. We each know deep down when we are doing right or wrong.Her simple reply, “no,” is feared by the male “sages who knew the laws” (Esther 1:13). They advise the king to cast Queen Vashti out and to replace her with a new queen.
What might this story have to say in light of the #MeToo movement and those who have survived sexual assault and abuse?
