Winter 2017, "Our Stories"
A reader recently suggested an entire edition of stories and sent one of his own as an example (it leads this edition). Many of the other stories are about some aspect of iden- tity formation. There’s also a ministry story, a story of forgiveness, and a personal account of a teenager overcoming a brain injury. Stories are powerful and grab people’s attention, which is probably why Jesus often taught in parables, one form of storytelling. Enjoy this change of pace!
