God’s Story | Our Story

28Apr04

In House Church last night we read and discussed Acts 13 – specifically relating to Paul’s recounting of God’s story to those gathered in the synagogue. The key point we emphasized was – we, as Christ-followers, are about finding ourselves in God’s story, rather than asking God to enter into our story. It is by finding our place within God’s story that our stories take on new and deeper meaning. Our story becomes part of THE story of creation and redemption and is a good news story to the world.

With that in mind it is important to hear each other’s stories of how we find ourselves in God’s narrative. So we are writing our spiritual autobiographies and will be sharing them within small groups of 3-4 folk next week. Also, we will collect these when we’re finished and compile them into a House Church memory book.

I’m really excited about this endeavor. This may prove to be a marking point in the life of our fellowship – taking it “down” another notch into deeper community.

This is the guide we’re using to write our stories – Writing your Spiritual Autobiography (PDF)
