Story Matters: Connecting the Story of Jesus and Me
Research from Luther Seminary’s Dwight Zscheile points to a future decline of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. One of the suggested solutions includes “learning how to listen to its own members’ spiritual stories and experiences in order to help connect them with the stories of scripture and theological tradition.”

Story Matters is a series of resources that focus on hearing God’s Word. It connects the process of Jesus and Me and adapts it so that a person might seek, name, and explore a specific biblical story about Jesus which connects with “their” story. Through this learning event, participants will rediscover their own spiritual stories so that others may come to understand the evangelical and theological heritage of Lutheranism.

Through this event, we will be able to put into practice the ability to listen to and tell spiritual stories of faith translated for today.

Brenda Smith, Program Director, ELCA Faith Practices and Book of Faith Initiative, leads us through the process of equipping participants to discern, deepen, and practice their faith using the biblical story to form themselves as a disciple of Christ called into mission.
