Devotion for the week of March 5
Key verse: I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes; first for the Jew, then for the Gentile. (Romans 1:16)
In many cultures, history is passed along orally. That is, there isn't a written history, just a series of stories that captures events from the past. Have each family member place one item that reminds him or her of a family story in a shoe box or other container. Maybe it's a baby shoe that's long been outgrown and is a reminder of someone learning to take a first step. Or it might be a check piece from an old game that used to be the family pastime. Whatever the item, ask the person who picks it to tell the story. Keep the box where you can add items now and then to create an "oral history" starter for your family.
