The Bigger Story

The last couple of years have pulled ALL of us into smaller, lesser stories. Stories that have divided us rather than united us. Stories that have caused us to think and live too small.

This year, let’s lift our heads and remember the Bigger Story. The story that swallows up all the lesser stories and gives us a better story to live our lives within.

We tend to look at The Bible as a series of separate, smaller stories. We are going to look at The Bigger Story and see how the whole story points to Jesus.

The Bible calls us all to “be bigger” with our lives.
