I heard a speaker today (Len Sweets) talking about speaking in story and metaphor, and speaking the language of the 22nd century kids we're working with now. What does that look like, I wonder?
He was a good speaker. The word "story" is a popular one, not just in church things but in business, too. I suppose it'll get over-used, maybe it already is. But I like it. I've said for a long time that I like books for the story. I like story.
Our worship leader, Alex, is leading a class on writing our own stories, part of our "year of the story" at church. Alex made a good booklet for us to use for the project. He's a good guy. Really deep in the scriptures. Also funny.
