For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then we will see face to face. Now I know only in part; then I will know fully, even as I have been fully known. — Christian scripture, I Corinthians 13:12

Take your timeline home to share with family members or friends. Invite others to identify their own turning points or moments of grace. Find a way to celebrate how those moments have helped make you the person you are.

Consider with others how leaders might work to ensure the congregation asks "Are we doing right things?" along with "Are we doing things right?" Entrust a volunteer or two from your group to write a newsletter piece explaining turning points and moments of grace. Create a forum for others to respond with their own turning point stories.
