Faithbooking Request

I always talk about the importance of documenting and sharing stories, especially our God Moments. I think it's high time I created an album about our ministry – documenting in one place the many of stories/seeds related to faithbooking. This will make it very easy to see what God has been up to and, at the same time, give us a tangible reminder of His faithfulness in both the large and small things. (I plan to create a similar album to pass along to leadership at the church.) Many of you have shared with me behind-the-scenes stories of God at work – thank you so much for that! It is always such an encouragement to see His hand in others’ lives. Your anonymity will be protected. I will also include pages regarding the many outreach projects our ministry taken part in; the Lord is simply amazing.

I have a request for you! I would like to hear your stories – even if it just seems like a teeny weenie thing to you, when you put all of the teeny weenie things together it makes a HUGE impact! If you do not want your name used or would prefer to have the details veiled (i.e. I would include those kinds of stories as a private pocket page), I will honor that request. Just drop me a note using the email link to the left. Or, if you would prefer to remain completely anonymous, just send your stories to:

Hosanna! Lutheran Church
9600 163rd Street West
Lakeville, MN 55044

Attention: Tina Vega, Monthly Faithbooking Crop

(Stories that relate to the blog are also welcome!) Here are some questions to help you begin:

1. How have the faithbooking crops inspired God-related action in your life? Have they affected the time you spend with God, interest in church or the Bible, reaching out to others, stepping out of your comfort zone, etc.? If so, please share how.
2. Have you been inspired to share the Faithbooking Crops (or blog) with others? How about neighbors or friends you do not have a faith connection with? If so, please share your experience.
3. Barring equipment malfunctions, we try to begin each crop with worship. How do you feel about the worship portion of our crop? Have those feelings changed over time? If so, how?
4. Have you been sprinkling faith-related journaling into your albums? Please share how your journaling has changed since attending the Faithbooking Crops or reading the blog.
5. What do you like most about the Faithbooking Crops and/or blog? What do you like the least?
6. Have you been noticing God at work in your life? Do you see Him using the Faithbooking Crops or blog as part of that journey? If so, please share how.
7. If the crops or blog have been of value to you in any way, please share how.

Thank you so much for your time!
