Your story and your identity should be about much more than you.
Session Three started with a Q&A with Jason Russell, with the emerging motif of story. Q&A’s are hard to sum up, but some key points were uncovered:
- Everyone has a story, and every story has the potential to transform another’s life.
- Especially when we are transparent and vulnerable; the world will try to tell us a different story.
- We need to share our stories, but we need to know our limits; while we can absolutely positively impact the world we cannot control it.
- Take care of one another, globally.
- Know in your own darkest moments that God has you.
Chris Seay bridged this Q&A nicely by saying that the disconnect in our identities comes about when we fight between who we are and who the world says we are; most of us are continuously fighting the battle of reality and faking a life according to the world’s expectations.
