At Diocesan Convention, Bishop Mariann invited all parishes in the Diocese to explore using Faith Sharing cards as a way to invite others into conversations about their faith journey.
Each card has a question, in English and in Spanish, such as:
Share a story about a time when you saw that God was present in someone very different from yourself.
What does it mean to be made in God’s image? How does knowing that you are made in God’s image impact how your relate to others?
The cards are a simple way to prompt conversations of personal sharing in a variety of settings. You can use them in small group settings, over a meal, as part of a meeting, allowing those gathered to share a bit of their faith journey with another as a devotional exercise, or in a larger setting, dividing into small group conversations.
In the words of Presiding Bishop Michael Curry, “We’ve all got a story to tell, a story filled with love and hope and God’s grace and mercy. We’ve got a story of God in our lives, a story of ways that Jesus has already been working in our lives, sometimes without our even knowing.”
You can download a set faith sharing cards here.
