The Story of God

People who believe they are good enough to be welcomed into heaven someday (which is most of the people we talk to in Italy) do not understand who God is nor how he has been working his plan to redeem the world back to himself! They simply cannot understand where faith in Jesus fits into the equation – since they have IMG_20140314_193236 IMG_20140314_193157 been brought up “in Christ” as cultural Catholics.  So, in a very real sense – we need to take people back to the beginning and help them see themselves as lost – then show them how lost people become found as they come to God through Jesus.  Caesar and Tina Kalinowski (director of GCM) came and taught us how to tell God’s fascinating story of redemption –  from Genesis to Revelation – in a way that engages people in asking the right questions and discovering the right answers.  There were three area churches that sent people to the conference – so it was also a time to build relationships with other believers.
