your celebration stories

Sapphire Connection invites you to share your celebration stories with our community;

  • stories that strengthen, inspire, bring joy and provide hope.
  • stories that come from being you and walking in your design.
  • stories that celebrate that unique way you interact and connect with God.
  • and lastly, stories about process.that is the in between and not yet finished stories wrought with difficulty and hardship. we want to celebrate those too.

The sharing of stories connects us one to another and helps us to remember who we are.

Telling stories brings healing and listening to stories does as well.

I want to create a level playing field because everyone's story matters. From your mountain top experience to your day to day ordinary living, help us to experience the familiar in a new way, where even the mundane becomes sacred.

you have no idea what your stories can mean to a fellow sojourner

Jesus, the master story teller loved to tell stories. When we tell our own we are doing what he did. There was always more than meets the eye when Jesus told a story. I think that same quality and intentionality with which he spoke is the same drawing card we have in our hand today; to capture the hearts of others as we remember and celebrate together what God is doing.

So, what is your vantage point? I want to see from where you are standing. Seasons come and go. We take the good with the bad and we ask God even then, "Where are you in this mess? Show me yourself in a way I have never seen before."

We would love to hear your story to help us all have a bigger view of God.

I will post some of mine here. ~ BE ENCOURAGED
