Take Time to Hear One Another's Stories

Tim Chester, from his excellent book, You Can Change:

Every Sunday in our church we give people the opportunity to talk about what God has been doing in their lives during the past week: answers to prayer, comfort from God's Word, opportunities for evangelism, help in temptation.  In so doing, we reinforce our belief in a God who is alive and active among us.

I think Chester has hit on something huge here.  We need to take time to hear each others' stories so we can grow in grace together.  As Scripture says, we grasp the love of Christ "together with all the saints" (Eph. 3:18).
