Telling your Story

 About 40 people stayed on after the Bring and Share lunch on Sunday for a workshop led by James Lawrence of the Church Pastoral Aid Society, who had been the speaker in the morning. Then, he had called on us to be Salt and Light – to be God's presence in society. James now spoke about the way that we could be the connection between the lifestyle of our friends and the way of Christ. He spoke about all the barriers that discourage people from wanting to know more about Christ and encouraged us to tell our own story.
He reinforced his message by encouraging us to speak together in small groups, imagining real situations.
With Christmas coming, which reminds us how Christ came to earth to engage with its people and bring salvation, it was good to discover how we could be involved in his work.
