The Plot Twist
March 12, 2023
Who doesn't love a good plot twist?! From children's books to epic sagas to blockbuster films, we often find the greatest entertainment in the reveal of a plot twist that changes everything we thought we knew about a story. This week we reach the pinnacle of the saga of Joseph and his brothers. After all that they've been through, we reach the moment when Joseph finally reveals to them who he is, and it changes everything! But as much as we love the drama in our favorite shows and movies, and even here in the announcement of Joseph to his brothers, plot twists in our own lives are....a lot to process. On Sunday, we'll talk about what this story means for us as we navigate the plot twists of life. We can't wait to see you then!
Going the Extra Mile:

- What have been some major plot twists in your life? How have you handled them?
