Stories Matter

The stories of people in Scripture are not perfect. They are often painful, messy and very real because God has chosen to speak to us through us.

When we choose to embrace our story and tell it to others, God is able to make lemonade from our lemons. Stories matter to God. Our own story matters to God.

Telling your story is a gift of vulnerability to others, and that creates power to break down walls between you and others. It enables the ministry of reconciliation.

Stories enable us for thanksliving because of what God Has done, is doing or the hope of what He will do. That's life in the kingdom...

The Road goes ever on and on
Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the
Road has gone,
And I must follow, if I can,
Pursuing it with eager feet,
Until it joins some larger way
Where many paths and errands meet
And whither then? I cannot say. J. R. R. Tolkien
