We thought it might be of value to create a space here to capture and to share and to be encouraged by a few of the Encounter stories. Some stories are profound others are simple, but all are worth sharing.
When an encounter with Jesus becomes a point in history, a past chapter, or only a memory, it has effectively ended. Jesus is God With Us not once, but continually. If nothing else, our Christmas Program, Encounter was intended to bring Jesus to life for those who have forgotten he lives, or have doubted he lives or never believed he lives. We hoped and prayed that Encounter would, through song, drama, media, and words bring Jesus center-stage so that ones might hear him, believe him, wonder about him, expect him, experience him, consider him…trust him as never before or trust him again.
Possibly the most inspired element included during the Encounter was to put scripture into everybody’s hand. The impact of that was surprisingly underestimated! Stories have virtually poured in as people absorbed and considered God’s unique and sometimes deeply meaningful word to them.
Come on, let’s record in some small way the powerful thing God did this past weekend! Write your story or the one you know here. Be descreet if necessary, and don’t feel as though it must be long.
