Telling Stories

Telling Stories

I’ve been thinking about stories.

Why do we tell stories?

In our small group we learned that songs (which are mostly just stories sung instead of spoken) are more powerful than just delivering sterile information or pure data.

Jesus often used parables—which is just another term for stories—instead of telling his followers outright what he wanted them to know.

"My Name is Hurst And I'm a Judgeaholic"

"My Name is Hurst And I'm a Judgeaholic"

Do you ever think about the disciples or the people who met Jesus when He was on earth and wonder how they could possibly miss Him as the Messiah?  

Of course I have—I’ve judged them too.

But I look at myself sober and realize that I don’t have the confidence that I would know Jesus if he sent me a singing Candygram and delivered it Himself.
