You never know what another person will take away from a story you tell

One way that we can share so that others may learn is through Stories, a new section of the diocesan website devoted to telling the stories of our ministries in this part of God’s Kingdom. Several recent entries were reprinted in this issue of Connections. But you don’t have to wait until the next issue of Connections for more; you can read others’ stories as well as submit your own 24/7/365. Check it out at
