Telling the Story
One of my devotional books I use suggested singing “I Love to Tell the Story” this morning. The chorus goes:
I love to tell the story,
‘Twill be my theme in glory
To tell the old, old story
Of Jesus and His love.
How are we telling the story of Jesus and His love today? People respond and give because they are moved by the stories of lives being changed through ministry and mission. We often assume that everyone in our congregations know what we are doing, but that is a mistake. People are often unaware of all that is being done to share the story of Jesus and His love.
The time leading up to the offering is a great time to share a thirty second story about how the church is telling the story of Jesus to children or youth. What about the visit by the group to the local nursing home? A portion of your mission shares goes to educate new clergy, who will tell the story of Jesus and His love.
The Foundation can assist you in telling the story of Jesus and His love. Call us or email us today.
