How would you describe your story in 12 words?

What words come to mind? When were those moments, where are the places, who are the people, that have shaped your life?

Here is a challenge for when you have some words in mind: do they match the kinds of words that could be used to describe the Bible story? Are you open to the idea that an ancient religious text might connect with the experiences of your life? That it might offer wisdom, hope and a solution to all our struggles?

Join us on a journey:

12 Words is a 12-part film series that introduces the Bible story in 12 simple words. For each word, there is a short passage from the Bible, with comments and questions to help you understand what’s going on.

Will the words match the kind of words you used to describe your story? Or will they be totally different?

> Start now with the first word: DELIGHT.
