How was your storytelling experience? Last week, I challenged you to tell the story of "where God is working in your life" to someone close to you.
This week, let's step a little further out of our comfort zones and tell our story to someone outside of our immediate circles. This could be your work colleague, your doctor, or even your literal neighbor (if you're not necessarily best buddies).
Take your cue like this: when someone asks "How are you?" don't just say "Fine." Really, tell them! Are you happy because God answered a prayer? Are you worried about things in the world, but you know that God has your back? Take this often-overlooked opportunity to share a little more. You never know where the conversation will take you...
And if this whole initiative intimidates you, don't lose heart! Even though we are wired for storytelling (more on that later), it may not always come natural to everyone. Like anything worth doing, it comes with practice and experience. And, as always, I want to hear about your experiences!
Telling the story with you,
Cantor Kurt Schmidt
