For a story to work, for it to really come to life, you gotta know the characters. Beginning September 8, we’re going to focus on one bible story a week, getting to know the characters — who’s who, their back story, how they’re connected, and why you should care.
As humans, we long for meaning and belonging. We find it in work and play and people around us. Yet, we hope our lives are somehow part of a larger story, that we’re connected to a purpose that transcends our pursuit of status and stuff. We long, in short, for a relationship with the one who made us. How do we speak of such things? And how do we grow in faith?
