Telling stories of God’s faithfulness

In Joshua 4, God tells the Israelites to set up twelve stones in the place where he delivered them through the Jordan River—the stones would keep them from forgetting what God had done for them, and would prompt them to tell that story to their children.

If you are a member of the wider Trinity community (alumni, students, staff, and faculty), take a moment to share with us a story of God’s faithfulness, whether now or in the past, as encouragement to continue to trust him with today’s uncertainties.

You can share a story by emailing melissa.stratis@trinitycollegebristol.ac.uk or through a Twitter/Facebook DM. We will be looking forward to hearing any stories you’d like to tell, and you can read the stories below that we’ve shared so far.
