Sticky Faith Stories
This Sunday my church celebrated transitions associated with the back-to-school season. Given the number of kids, educators, and college/graduate students in our congregation, we named quite a few transitions. In the spirit of sharing Sticky Faith Stories and resources, I’ve slightly adapted our liturgy from Sunday. We’d love to hear your stories, ideas, and prayers for transitioning into the new school year!
One of our mantras as we work with churches in our Sticky Faith Cohorts is this: vision is a shared story of future hope. Because of that truth, we’ve converted our Sticky Faith blog into a story-sharing portal. What’s your story? We’d love to hear it and share it!
What was your favorite bedtime story when you were a kid? My favorite was a classic story from my grandfather.
Sending the kids off to college isn’t fun. And I’m not talking about my actual, biological kids. The kids that I dislike sending off to college are the High School seniors who have allowed the Student Ministry team and I to enter into their lives during their formative years.

After becoming a parent myself, I’ve realized that I want to be the biggest influence in my kids’ lives. Not only that, but God calls me to point them toward Jesus every day through everything that I say and do.
The congregation I serve has developed a concept we call The Faith Web. A Faith Web is a constellation of people who willingly and lovingly surround you with faith. It expands, or at least builds upon, the 5:1 ratio that the FYI team writes about in Sticky Faith.
