Do you love a good story? Are you a good storyteller? Some of my favorite speakers can draw me in with a good story. Many times, I have attended a convention where in the midst of thousands of people, one could “hear a pin drop” as the speaker relates a relevant story to bring home a point. This is especially effective at the conclusion of a message where we are asked to make a change or life-changing decision. With that in mind, I am excited to embark on this wonderful journey over the next several months. After all, where can we find better stories (and they are all true!) than in the Bible. I encourage you to read The Story in advance so that you can drink in all that you can on Sunday mornings and in your small group. As I said in our worship services on January 5, I hope to support the message of each story through our congregational singing and special music whenever possible.
