There’s power in story because stories convey truth in ways that facts can’t. Our stories matter because our stories are part of God’s story. Stories of how we’ve encountered and experienced God. Stories of how knowing and following Jesus has made a difference in our lives. Stories of pain…and healing. Of failure…and redemption. Of hurts…and finding hope. Stories of real life and experiencing the real love that comes from God by knowing and following Jesus. By seeing how God works in and through the lives of others, we can begin to see how God can work in and through our own lives.
