Share your pioneering stories!
When you tell a story, you spark a connection. And stories passed on through generation, integral to culture and embedded in values. Stories preserve culture and pass on cultural knowledge from one generation to another. In essence, stories keep cultures alive. (Kingdom Culture)
Everyone has a story to tell. You have yours, and if you pay close attention to your story, you will realize that your stories are collections of your experiences.
It is your perspective that shapes the meaning of your stories. Not everyone is able to recognise the words in the original writings of the bible, but certainly be able to empathize with characters like Joseph or Sarah when reading their stories.
Stories will always matter,
now and in the future.
