Such things were written in the Scriptures long ago to teach us. And the Scriptures give us hope and encouragement as we wait patiently for God’s promises to be fulfilled. – Romans 15:4
One of the truly amazing things about the Bible is that it tells the good, the bad, and the ugly and yet provides the greatest hope of all time. The same should be true of our telling our own stories and history. Recently Disciples Today and the Beam Missions Foundation released a brand new website telling the story of the International Churches of Christ from first-hand viewpoints: icochistory.org.
The site is full of original materials including articles, bulletins, podcasts, presentations, videos, audios, books, web links, and more. The Search feature will help you find specific content.
