Sharing our Faith Journeys is a way of building our Christian community, of being involved. “Come and see” (John 1:46) are the words the disciple Philip says to his friend Nathaniel. It was and is an invitation to friendship, discovery and discipleship. This invitation is the journey that tells the stories that stir our hearts and helps us find our way. Stories help us understand each other. Stories transform our churches and change our lives. Ours is a storytelling God. In God’s story we find our own and in our own stories, we find God at work in our lives and the lives of those whose lives touch ours.
Each of us has a story that tells something about our journey, an answer to the question, “What does my faith mean to me?” Here are some of our journeys.
