Last week, I shared a bit on the power of stories. They provide context, speak to others in ways we may never have imagined, and provide a window into God’s work.
Over the next year, we are going to dive deeply into the concept of storytelling. All of us have a story to tell. Sioux Falls Seminary’s story is intimately connected to the stories of the individuals and organizations we have the opportunity to walk alongside. God does amazing work in and through his people. We will talk about how we are working to reconnect theological education and the Church, what it means to be a part of the kingdom rather than building our own little kingdoms, and how God is using Sioux Falls Seminary in the lives of his people. The stories of God’s faithfulness are astounding.
We plan to divide this story into a few components. First, we will look at how God has done immeasurably more than we could have ever asked or imagined. The past four years at Sioux Falls Seminary have proven to be full of creative moments of the Spirit. We hope to share some of those parts of our story as we give thanks for what God has done and continues to do. Next, we will look at how the story of God’s work through this seminary is being told around the world. Finally, we will look at those who have joined us in this work and how we are stewarding God’s gracious gifts.
There is much to cover, but our primary focus is inviting you to “see and hear” the “praiseworthy deeds of the Lord” (Psalm 78:4). God is good and we are blessed to be a part of what he is doing. We invite you to join us we recount the marvelous work of our King.
