Telling your story
During your ‘Rule of Life’ journey’, you’ll need to ‘Tell’ your Christian story.
Telling your story helps others understand someone like them can be a disciple. It will help break down barriers and give them the courage so they begin their discipleship journey.
Here's Rev Kate Wharton explaining how we all have a story to tell
As you think and pray about this course then take time to reflect on what your story is.
Bishop Paul reflects on being sent to tell
As a student, I used to take the bus to college. As I was standing at the bus stop with my friend Tony, we had a ringside view of a traffic accident - nothing serious, just one of those slow-motion shunts that happen regularly in any city. We gave our names to the drivers, and a week or two later we received witness-statement forms to complete. After we’d done so, we compared notes and found that our accounts differed substantially. Neither of us thought that this was a problem. We argued the toss over a coffee, and then we sent our forms off and thought no more about it. We didn’t amend or change what we had written, because we had been asked to give an account as we remembered it. We were not advocates for one or other point of view. We were witnesses. Being a witness is not a stressful occupation. All you have to do is say what you have seen and heard, as it seems to you. If others have a different perspective, so be it. In the Bible the experience is the same.ResourceTotal current bookmarks 0
Why do Christians ‘Tell’ people about Jesus?
As Christian disciple you will have experienced feeling what God can do for you and what God wants from you. As a disciple, you will want others to experience this. The best way for others to know Jesus and God is to tell them your story and invite them to find out more through coming to church. .Course 2 PartsTotal current bookmarks 2
