Kevin's Blog

Monday, August 25, 2008 by Sam Davidson

Our friend Kevin leaves on Friday for three weeks in South Africa. He'll be blogging his trip, and here's what he had to say:
i will be spending about three weeks with my friends ben and alicia . what will i be doing there? well i'm not really sure. believe me, this is not a hook drawing your interest, i really don't know. i'll be there. doing what they do. drinking some cappuccinos. mispronouncing a myriad of nouns, common and proper, maybe an adjective every once in a while to liven things up. but i just bought the ticket last week... so...


i plan to update this every few days.

my expectation is to be razed. that this experiment in truth will give an answer or two, refocus some questions and open the floodgate to more. and i hope to chronicle what might be useful or colorful or fun for you all to read.

please join me

April 6 at the Story

Friday, April 04, 2008 by Sam Davidson

This Sunday, we'll begin looking at a single word and its implications for us as a community. That word is

Don't worry if you're not familiar with it. In fact, if you're so inclined to get acquainted with it, check out this article.

At 5 PM, you have two options:
  • Our own Keith Parrish will be accompanying in a voice recital at Belmont at 5pm. It should last about 50 minutes and could be a fun endeavor, if folks want to come and enjoy some music.
  • Or you can bring some food and eat said food at 5 PM at the story (at Sam and Lynnette's house - 1315 7th Ave. N.). If you want a theme, here 'tis: bring food that's mixed together (gumbo, stew, casserole...you get the picture).
Then, at 6 PM, we'll begin to unpack this word missional and begin to discuss what it means for us to be a missional community in the middle of Nashville.

See you soon.

Latest Conversation: Where in the world is God?

Friday, February 22, 2008 by Sam Davidson

There are lots of opportunities to find God around us - but often, God isn't where we hope, expect or demand that God be. Thus, we have to be aware of the local and make an effort to watch, listen, and hope in order to see the work of God everywhere.

Until Easter, we'll be asking the deep question: Where in the world is God?

To answer it, we'll actually have to get out of our houses, apartments, comfort zones and social circles. But, it's a quest worth undertaking, and one we can't afford to ignore.

about us

The Story is a faith community in Nashville, Tennessee that allows people to ask questions, voice doubts, and find meaning. We're a group of people trying to figure out what it means to live out the story of God in the way of Jesus. We gather on Sunday evenings at 5 for a community meal, followed by time of discussion, reflection, and worship at 6.

Living the story of God seems hard, but to us, it means working together to create space where people can live in relationship with God and with one another, ordering our lives according to the kingdom that Jesus described, telling the story of God as expressed in the Bible and being a part of the story of God that continues today.
