Tell Your Story, Tell It Well
The church, if it wishes to speak into the culture around it, must regain its ability to tell testimonies. It must read its history and learn to tell its individual stories, and to tell them well, so that hearers hungry for a roadmap might find it in us. Our faith gives us the riches and depth of individual narratives that help us live into the life genre God calls us to---and to live with joy, not despair, when it takes a detour. Let us not settle for the shallow Hollywood ending or the witty Facebook gloss.
