A Story of Redemption

Leave a comment

Sometimes (often actually) I get asked what to do after Alpha.  My answer is usually, Alpha.  After Alpha comes Alpha.  Now I’m not saying that there aren’t other things to learn as you grow in your faith, but The Alpha Course does so many things that are hard to replicate.

Often churches and Alpha groups get disappointed that there are not as many participants as they’d like, or it’s hard to keep the volunteers envisioned and motivated.  Here’s a story that highlights why a church should keep running Alpha.  Imagine if this church didn’t have an Alpha Course running.

(from the Regional Alpha Team of Northeast Ohio)

Running Alpha Courses followed by Alpha Courses is kind of like having eaves troughs on your house.  You don’t just put them up when it’s raining, you keep them up all the time (though some of my neighbours seem to disagree, but that’s another story).

Be faithful.  Tell his story often.

Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage—with great patience and careful instruction. 2 Timothy 4:2
