#TellHisStory: What Ferguson Taught Us

It was Sunday morning in Ferguson, Missouri.

And this is what I saw. This is what I learned.

Join me at The High Calling today for a special installment of #TellHisStory. A week ago, my friend Deidra invited me to join her in Ferguson to tell stories of the people there. We spent the weekend there, and we sat down in the middle of the ache.

So, what’s your Story?

A #TellHisStory is any story that connects your story into the story of God.

You’re invited to tell that story right here, in community with us.

Share your narratives, your poems, your Instagrams tagged with #TellHisStory, … your beautiful hearts. You are the chroniclers, the people who help others make sense of the world with your words and your art.

Story is how we know that, no matter what happens, we can get back up again.

Visit someone (or two) in the link-up to encourage with a comment. Then, Tweet about your posts, and the posts you visit, with the #TellHisStory hashtag. Come back on Friday to visit our Featured #TellHisStory, in the sidebar.

A final note: This is a safe place to tell your stories. You don’t have to be a professional writer to join us. Story is built into every single one of us. Your story matters, because it’s part of God’s story down through history, not because you punctuated everything correctly. Deal?
