Why We Tell Our Stories

“Why We Tell Our Stories”

http://rachelheldevans.com/addie-zierman-bloody-truth

 

This blog is beautiful, not only because it represents a powerful reading of scripture, but also  its the author, Addie Zierman, gives us a perfect rationale for describing our own experience. As she writes, the point is not that your story is necessarily big and famous, but that you offer an invitation for others to see themselves in it. On second thought, perhaps personal stories that offer that gift are the biggest ones of all. Enjoy this post!

About Andrew Taylor-Troutman

I am a pastor and a preacher, a writer, a husband and a father. My professional and personal lives are deeply involved with story-telling: stories that are silly and poignant or profound and commonplace. Stories that are tear-jerkers and belly-shakers. Stories about my son, Sam, and the congregation I serve, New Dublin Presbyterian Church. Each in its own way, these personal narratives shed light on the great story that God is writing with humankind and all of creation.
