Naomi and Ruth hatch a big plot. They scheme their way into an unlikely betrothal between Ruth and Boaz. The foreign, barren, widow has little more to offer than her kind reputation and bold faith. But that is enough to impress Boaz. He provisionally accepts her proposal and sends her home with good news and extra grain. The third scene shows the power of big risks, big asks, and rehearsing God's redemption, even if it means overturning some social norms.
