Kevin and I were blessed by the sermon series for “The Story”. It gave us an opportunity to reach out in a unique way to our family. Before the series began we gave them copies of the book and extended an invitation to join us on Saturday evenings for worship and a meal at our house afterwards. Our invitation was accepted and we were thrilled. Saturdays were a special time as we planned and prepared the meal and cleaned our home together. We enjoyed worshipping together as a family, discovering and learning God’s story and sharing around the dinner table. Conversations varied – sometimes a continued discussion of the message, sometimes individual daily struggles or just plain small talk. Some of our grandkids brought their friends with them. This was a great way to present God’s story to all of us. We know in our hearts seeds were planted and we look forward to what God has planned next for all of us.
