What is The Story?

.

The Story is an abridged, chronological Bible that reads like a novel. There are no verse references, and Scripture segments are seamlessly woven together with transition text into a single grand narrative. For those intimidated or overwhelmed by the unabridged Bible, The Story helps people understand God’s Word more fully and engage with it more easily.

.

Come Join Us!

.

We are embarking on a 31 week journey using The Story as our guide. Join us on a Sunday morning as we read the Bible together!

September 30th is National Truth and Reconciliation Day, which is also Orange Shirt Day. It is observed in recognition of the harm the residential school system did to indigenous children’s sense of self-esteem and well being, and as an affirmation of our commitment to ensure that everyone around us matters. Today, we encourage you to wear an orange shirt to demonstrate our commitment to reconciliation and to opening and continuing the dialogue about residential schooling. The origin of this act is inspired by the story of Phyllis Webstad, who attended a residential school in British Columbia in the 1970s. Phyllis was initially excited to go to school and went shopping with her granny to pick out a new outfit for school; she chose a shiny orange shirt. That shirt was taken away from her when she arrived at residential school and was never returned to her. In Phyllis’ own words: “The colour orange has always reminded me of that and how my feelings didn’t matter, how no one cared and how I felt like I was worth nothing.” 

.

Take time today to honour and remember those who each have their own stories and allow space for them to share them.
