One of the best ways we can connect with people is through stories. We’re going to try to post a few stories every week from our life. We aren’t anything special, the fooliness of the cross is why we do this. These are just little pictures to point you to Jesus.
For six weeks we have been going through the Story of God in Bible club. With boys from 1st through 8th grade, we read one story every week and eventually will go through the whole narrative of the scriptures. This last week I was reviewing the previous 4 weeks with the kids. One boy who seems to never be listening recited almost word for word the stories.
Every Sunday after our weekly service, we go one of the other housing projects in Watts. We meet right in the middle on the Basketball courts. Two of the Sundays each month we play games and the other two we have a service. A couple of weeks ago I drove three teens from the housing project by our house over to Nickerson Gardens to play games . We got there and they said they didn’t want to get out, they were scared. The two hoods don’t get along. While trying to convince them to get out, a few of the kids from Nickerson came over. Eventually we all convinced them to get out and we had a great night playing soccer all together.
