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