As we set out to examine the theme of story over these twelve weeks, we’ll be zooming in on twelve well-known Old Testament characters. In these real life, historical stories, we will see the way God takes lives filled with small successes and great failures and, as a master craftsman, turns them into a grand masterpiece of divine origin.
We will also see that all of our stories and all the stories that make up our city are no less a part of God’s story than any other. Throughout this series we’ll examine our own stories and look for God’s redemptive thread being pulled through each of them. We’ll hear individual testimonies on Sundays as we gather, and we’ll share our own stories in our Community Groups.
We’ll make much of our stories–not because in them we see our own greatness, but because in them we see the greatness and glory of a God who makes beautiful things out of mere dust.
