Telling stories is an important way to activate our brains and to unleash creativity. The disciples had a story to tell when Jesus came to them and proclaimed peace. They thought he was a ghost, but he was alive. Jesus’ presence with us can be startling at first, and the peace he offers can be surprising when we’re unsettled and restless. Jesus desires that we get close to him. Ministries like Christian camping are transformative times to get to know Jesus personally and in community with others.
