What stories have you heard about yourself, or told about yourself, that give glimpses of key elements of who you believe you are? Whether accolades and affirmation, or tales of infamy, it’s amazing how quickly we attach labels to ourselves and others. Perhaps one way to capture the bigger, fuller picture of who we are and who we are called to be, we need to find some quiet, and listen. Susan retells the tale of John the Baptist’s dad in Luke 1:68-79 in this Second Week of Advent sermon.
The Help is a book by Kathryn Stockett, a timeless story about the ability to create change, set in the 1960s in the deep South. It was adapted into a movie in 2011. It’s funny and heartwarming and nail biting and inspiring. If you haven’t had chance to read or rent it, please do!
