It Takes Nothing Big to Be the Church.
I’d like to think that when I preach, it transforms people. The reality, however, is that preaching changes very little though I do think there are other gifts that come through preaching; weekly encouragement, re-focus for the coming week, or challenges to consider naming a few. What does transform us is our experience in life coupled with our faith. A life experience, birth of a child, death of a dear friend, an accident, or a pandemic, can cause us to reflect and re-orient our life and these experiences become a part of your story.
Sharing your story is one of the most powerful ways God works in your life to build you up, encourage, and help you transform more and more into the person God created you to be. Your story becomes much more powerful when you share your story with people so it can encourage and build them up too.
- How have you managed during this time of isolation?
- Where has God been at work in you or through you?
- What have you struggled over during this time?
Here’s how you can share your story with your Lakeview family. Take a few minutes to write down your experience so you can tell it in 2-3 minutes. Then video yourself or have someone video it for you and send it to email@example.com by June 5.
I’ll be sharing some of the stories at an appropriate time in worship and we’ll make them available on Lakeview Alive.
