Story Divine is back!

Casey FitzGerald tells the story of Jesus’ temptation and more (Luke 3:21-22, 4:1-30).

Story Prompts:
1) Tell a story about DESIRE. (How did that desire manifest in positive ways? Where did the temptation part of the desire creep in?)

2) Tell a story about a boundary you had to set–a “no” you had to say in order to focus on your primary “yes.” (How did you do it? How did it make you feel? How was your life/ministry enhanced by it? Would you make the same choice now?)
