Today we were treated to stories told by different members of the congregation. Faye, as David, Chuck, as Saul, and Ginny, as Goliath, told this very familiar story from three perspectives. We also had the kids in Sunday School making stones with words of hope and faith written on them that members of the congregation could take home.
One of the great themes of the Bible (not the only one) is that little can be big when God is present. The huge hero Goliath and the little tiny shepherd boy meet on the field of battle. Is David just the dumb kid with God on his side, or is there more going on in the story?
