A NIGHT OF HONEST STORYTELLING
Dirty Laundry was an incredibly powerful a night of storytelling from students and staff who opened up their lives and shared how God had redeemed some of the darkest moments in their lives. We hope this night was a powerful reminder of how God can rewrite our stories and bring healing and hope even in the most challenging situations.
But that’s not the end of the story. At the end of the night, so many of you shared courageously shared your own stories, opening up about the places you want God to repair your brokenness. In the coming days we’ll be responding to each and every story that was submitted at Dirty Laundry. Keep an eye on this page as we begin to upload response videos this weekend.
We are currently in the process of filming responses to each and every one of the 600+ stories that you shared with us on Thursday night. Many response videos are completed and listed below, but we still have a few more to go. Thanks for being patient with us as we finish responding to the moving stories you shared with us at this powerful night.
“And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”
“When I can no more stir my soul to move, and life is but the ashes of a fire; when I can but remember that my heart once used to live and love, long and aspire- O, be thou then the first, the one thou art; be thou the calling, before all answering love, and in me wake hope, fear, boundless desire.”
“This is real love—not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins.”
1 JOHN 4:10
“Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.”
1 CORINTHIANS 2:9
“Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.”
“It would seem that Our Lord finds our desires not too strong, but too weak. We are half-hearted creatures, fooling about with drink and sex and ambition when infinite joy is offered us, like an ignorant child who wants to go on making mud pies in a slum because he cannot imagine what is meant by the offer of a holiday at the sea. We are far too easily pleased.”
C. S. LEWIS
“They cried to the Lord in their troubles, and he rescued them. He led them from their darkness and shadow of death and snapped their chains.”
“For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.”
2 TIMOTHY 1:7
“For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.”
2 CORINTHIANS 4:17
