Stories to tell

I thought this insight into outreach by Tim Chester was really interesting:

Everyone has their own version of the ‘gospel’ story:
  • creation – who I am or who I should be
  • fall – what’s wrong with me and the world
  • redemption – what’s the solution
  • consummation – what I hope for
The obvious and simple point here is that everyone has a story to tell. We can connect their story with the gospel story and our story through these intersections.

I wonder how our conversations might change if we listened out for these connections.
