Faith Stories and How and Why We Share Them

Prod. Code: ISBN:  978-0-8298-1779-9

God in My Life is a panorama of faith stories. Teenagers, Conference Ministers from each United Church of Christ conference as well as leaders from the six historically under-represented groups, were invited to share how God is active and engaged - not just in any stage of life - but in adolescence. This initial cluster of stories was enhanced with more from the unique perspectives of many others.

A resource section contains a range of methods and activities designed so that small youth or intergenerational groups, confirmation classes, teen or adult retreats can experience the sharing of faith stories in safe, fun, and non-threatening ways.

MAREN C. TIRABASSI is a United Church of Christ local church pastor and one of The Pilgrim Press’s best-selling authors. Two of her previous works focus on youth ministry: Blessing New Voices: Prayers of Young People and Worship Resources for Youth Ministry and DayBook for New Voices: A Calendar of Reflections by and for Youth.

MARIA I. TIRABASSI, a published poet and teacher, is a graduate of Emerson College in Boston. Her most recent youth ministry book is DayBook for New Voices: A Calendar of Reflections by and for Youth.

"Reading these testimonies opens a window not only into the spiritual lives of many good friends and colleagues, but also onto the rich spiritual terrain that provides a footing and foundation for the witness of the United Church of Christ. I hope this collection will inspire a season of storytelling among a new generation of leaders who will write the exciting next chapters of our life."
  - John H. Thomas, General Minister and President, United Church of Christ

"Maren Tirabassi and Maria Tirabassi have gracefully invited people to reflect on important moments in their lives, in which they experienced God, a sacred space, or a faith challenge, and to write those stories down. What an important and timely gift."
  - Valerie Tutson
