We love stories, but do we know how to share our stories? Sharing involves both telling our own stories and really hearing someone else’s stories. When I talk about this, I often hear people express reluctance, “I don’t know if I could tell someone my stories.” But the truth is, story sharing is as natural as hanging out with a friend, telling them about our weekend, or the book we just read.
And hearing another person’s story is a gift, both in the hearing and in the sharing. Don’t you love to hear a story? Don’t you love to have someone listen attentively when you speak? That’s what story sharing is about.
Using a token of your faith as your prompt, please share a story of God’s love.
When have you felt God really present in your life?
Do you consider yourself a worker with God?
Share a story about a time you felt you were working with God to do something.
Your first Easter here. What’s the most vivid memory you have of that day? If you haven’t yet been here for Easter, to what are you most looking forward? Or, what is your favorite Easter memory?
The pandemic is hard on all of us. Can you share the story of a challenge you’ve experienced?
How did you find your way here? Why do you keep coming back?
