Pentecost Compline with Hannah's Prayer

In the book of 1 Samuel, the prayer of Hannah functions as a table of contents or lens through which to read the rest of the book. Reading the story through the lens of her prayer, we are better able to understand the shape and intent of what takes place. Her prayer speaks of the upside down ways that God works in the world. If you are studying 1 Samuel with your group, this compline makes an excellent companion.
