|2022 is the Year of Stories in Scotland. Storytelling is a very important thing for us as Christians - we are part of, share and live out God's story.
This year, stories inspired by, created or written in Scotland will be showcased and celebrated. The love of stories is one of the strongest ways we connect with one another and share our experiences. Scotland has a particularly rich heritage of stories and storytelling to spotlight and celebrate. Scotland’s stories reflect who we are and shape how others see us.
"We can read stories and teach stories - but we are also living stories" — Westerhoff.
Paul says something similar: "You yourselves are our letter, inscribed on our hearts, known and read by everyone. It is clear that you are a letter from Christ, the result of our ministry, written not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts." — 2 Corinthians 3.
Do you teach things to believe about God - or do you live your life in such a way that your faith in action speaks of God's love and goodness? Here's an interesting Facebook post on 'God's story' by Ali Campbell, a youth and children's ministry consultant. (Please note, you may need to log in to Facebook to read this post.)
We look forward to growing and sharing our stories of life, faith and ministry throughout 2022.
