The Grove Prompt: Story

As we enter into the last month of 2016, we want to circle around the idea of story.

We’re beginning Advent, a time to remember the story. To prepare our hearts and minds to enter again into the miracle of Christmas, Christ becoming flesh. Let’s walk intentionally together into this mystery.

We’re also celebrating a story, the story of what God has done in us as a community called Velvet Ashes.  We’re going to look back on 2016, rejoicing in what he has done. And we’re going to look ahead, to believe in the story he has yet ahead of us.

As we move into the next chapter of 2017, we’re doing so in faith. In all honesty, we don’t know how we’ll have all the resources we need to continue as a ministry and community. But we believe in a God who is clearly moving here, and we’re trusting him to provide.

As we have prayed over this, we’ve asked God what our role is in this. His response has been simple: “Tell the story. And then ask.” That’s it, Lord? Yes, that’s it.

During the month of December, we’re going to share pieces of Velvet Ashes’ story. And we’re going to invite you to tell your story. Do you have a moment where God met you, encouraged you, spoke to you in some way through one of the facets of Velvet Ashes?

We have a few spots open if you’d like to be a guest author and have your post featured on our site. You can also link up your blog posts at The Grove and share on Instagram with #VelvetAshes and #VelvetAshesStory.
