Telling our stories in the light

June 17th, 2020

The art of storytelling can be pretty difficult. “We long to tell our most authentic stories and yet we fear telling our stories,” says Rev. Courtney Allen Crump, senior pastor of Grace Baptist Church in Richmond, Virginia. In today’s passage, Matthew 10:24-39, Jesus tells the disciples to tell their stories, but he also gives them words of comfort: “Do not be afraid for you are of more value than many sparrows.” If God’s eye is on the sparrow, God’s eye is on you as well. So, go, tell your story, and allow God to work through it!
