In this week’s readings we primarily focus on the apostle Paul gaining recognition for having a powerful testimony. Did you notice that Paul is retelling the story that the disciples told in the beginning of the Book of Acts? The message spread as the disciples were of one accord in telling and retelling the story of God. Some told the story beginning with Jesus while others such as Paul began with some of the early prophets.
I’m intrigued by the telling and retelling of the story; the rhythm becomes our own story. Our hearing it over and over places us within the narrative. The story becomes our story.
What is your story? Write down your story and notice where your faith has led you. Who was a major player in the drama? How did it begin and what has transpired over time?
