|Introduction||Here's the question that motivates me: How do we tell the stories of our faith in such a way that others—particularly our children—don't have to re-traverse the same valley of shadows we've come through to retain faith?
Many parents have realized that if we share the stories of scripture with our children the way they were told to us, our kids could grow up as miseducated as we ourselves often feel. Why not equip them to chart new territory?
I invite you to join me in re-telling our stories. Submit your re-imaginings of the biblical narrative to the e-mail below, and let's see where God leads us.
Although we may intuitively recognize the need for a 'post-ism' articulation of the biblical narrative, it helps if we can prove a real market for it. Your activity on this blog does that. So don't neglect to invite friends!
