The Power Of Story

Stories are a powerful thing.  They help our children go to bed.  A great love story can inspire romance and hope in our own life.  A movie with a great story can change our societies’ perception of people and events.  A great story can move us to action.  But what about your story?

If you were asked about your story what would you say?  Where would it begin; would you include the good with the bad?  Would you see the causes and effects?  More importantly, where would your story end – have you written the last chapter or is there more to come?

It is very likely that your story is more powerful than any you have read, heard, or watched.  And there is an even more powerful story that yours is a part of.  It begins in Genesis 1:26: Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.”  Your story begins as a precious creation of God himself.  But more than that, He has incredible purpose for your story, what He knows you can do, and He is writing a much better ending that you might have imagined.

Join us at Edgewater on Sundays and discover your story in THE STORY: the Bible as one continuing story of God and His people.  Visitors will get a free copy of The Story.
