CHANGING THE STORY Margaret Silf
June 11th 2020
Our lives are shaped to a great extent by the stories we tell ourselves and each other. Some of these stories, such as we find in scripture, are timeless and retain their power in all ages. Others, largely man-made, can go out of date or to be found to be faulty. During this day together we will explore some familiar stories in scripture, and let them guide our understanding of our own stories – the stories we have been told about ourselves, our world, and our faith – as we consider whether, and how, these may need to change as we mature in our relationships with each other and with God.
