SCRIPTURE: Esther 1:1-9 

SHOW NOTES: As we begin this new season – A Crown with Purpose – it’s important to share some of the historical and cultural setting. “In those days King Ahasuerus sat on his royal throne in Susa, the citadel, in the third year of his reign he gave a feast for all his officials and servants.

His providence is all inclusive. No person or detail of life escapes God’s control. 

SONG: "Our God Is In Control"
