Share your faith – Church urges Christians to open up
Published on 21 March, 2017
Scotland’s national church is urging members to share how faith has enriched their lives.
The Sharing Faith campaign seeks people to open up about the impact following Jesus has made by appearing in the Mission and Discipleship Council’s Life Stories video series.
Each month the remarkable stories of people who have encountered God will be posted online in the hope other followers of Christ will share their experiences too.
Rev Martin Fair, convener of the Why Believe Group who created the campaign, said he hoped the stories would “encourage and inspire” congregations to have the confidence to explain to others the benefits of having a deep faith.
“Each video will tell a unique story,” the minister of St Andrew’s Parish Church in Arbroath added.
“Yet all will evidence that God is very much alive and well within the Church of Scotland today.
“We ask people to share these videos as widely as possible and to ask their minister to use them in worship.”
