Along the Track - "Which Stories?"

8th December 2020

“So what stories will we tell about 2020?! What stories will we choose to share, to take to heart, what stories do we want others to hear? … 2020 has left a lasting legacy. Throughout the year we were all waiting for things to return to ‘normal’ but, underneath it all, we realised that everything will not be as it used to be.

But faith is far from that.
