During the pandemic, it has become oh so important for people to stay connected in their relationships, their faith, and their heritage. One new way of doing this happens every Sunday night on the Facebook page of the Community of Christ Historic Site Foundation.
Each week while stay-at-home orders are in place, a storyteller leads a short devotion. It will use a story from Community of Christ history and show how it connects to our lives and faith.
Stories will highlight examples of the Enduring Principles, Mission Initiatives, or moments in life that cause viewers to consider the meaning behind the historic experience. The stories help us see how church history can inspire and change lives.
And during the pandemic, they help us stay together. Join us on Facebook to find connections that span church history.
The COVID-19 pandemic has brought undeniable hardship and pain. However, some blessings are coming from it, too. One is a video project sponsored by the Community of Christ Historic Sites Foundation.
It’s called, “We Are All Storytellers.” In a time when so many people are feeling isolated, this project offers an opportunity for people to connect through stories. The project is seeking to collect stories from church history that reflect the goodness in humanity (people helping others, making sacrifices, practicing forgiveness, and offering generosity).
Remember, we’re all storytellers. So brush up on your storytelling skills. Then visit the foundation’s Facebook page (www.facebook.com/Community-of-Christ-Historic-Sites-Foundation-194388303381/) to enjoy—and offer—stories.
