WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 6: SHARING YOUR STORY  (LARGE GROUP at 7PM)

By |2021-01-05T14:55:35-06:00January 5th, 2021|Life U January|

Christians are a storytelling people. It’s part of our DNA. That story includes the messy and the beautiful, the heart-wrenching, the humorous, the tragic and hopeful. The Holy Spirit works through our stories. But Christians are often reluctant to tell our stories of faith. This lecture focuses on the power of storytelling and how the Spirit works in unseen ways to break open hope in hopeless places. Join Dr. Michael Chan and your St. Andrew’s pastors as we explore this topic, which leads into our Lenten journey.

Immersed in Verse WEDNESDAYS 6:00 PM

Telling our own stories can feel a little more manageable when we do it a verse at a time. Grab your favorite pen and join Intern Pastor Amy Mihelich Smith as we immerse ourselves in the poetry of our past, present, and future. We’ll read great poetry from the Bible and from contemporary authors. Inspired by prompts and guided meditations, we’ll write our own poems together. We’ll reflect on the transformative power of storytelling, practice sharing poetry with others, and discover how our verses contribute to the larger epic of God’s work in the world.

What are the stories that shape who your family is?
