11: A Story Big Enough to Live In – Part 2

A Story Big Enough to Live InIf you caught podcast #10, you know we’re currently leading a four-week series at our church. It’s called “A Story Big Enough to Live In.” This episode is also a condensed summary of our notes from the class. If you’re interested in learning more about storytelling, this material will be right up your alley.
Again, we kick things off with a Psalm that’s central to our calling as believers. 96:3 says Publish his glorious deeds among the nations. Tell everyone about the amazing things he does.” We followed up with these three questions in light of that mandate:
  • “What is God up to?”
  • “What is our role in that story?”
  • And “How do we tell that story … and tell it well?
Are you still questioning whether or not you have stories worth telling? God gave EVERY one of us the power and means to tell stories. It’s just that it may look different for each of us. That’s because of our unique lives and circumstances and the unique way he made each of us.


In this episode we share a few of our favorite stories to help you get started. Then we get into the topic of legacy. Check out the video clip below as you consider what kind of legacy you’ll want to leave. You’ll hear a sweet, older couple tell their story of decades together – all in about three minutes.


Now that you have a few ideas to get you thinking about your stories, that will prepare you for what we have in store for our next class and podcast. We’ll be focusing on how to condense your stories into “bite-size” pieces just right for sharing.


We’re so glad you’re taking this storytelling journey with us. Keep a watch for the stories God puts in your path this week and ask him to show you what he wants you to takeaway from this material.
