Sunday Reflection: Tell A Better Story

In life, a better story involves faithful inclusion, inspiration, love, peace, grace, laughter, choice. Without those things, life turns into a very mean existence for many. This is the story I wish to tell and to encourage.

Without these stories, our world would be full of chaos. There has been so much suffering and pain. People don’t have to suffer if we would genuinely love one another.

Inspiration can go a long way to promote the things above and to create a place where we can all have the promise of tomorrow delivered daily.

My friends, I hope you all tell a better story do the negative and mean stuff is drowned out forever. We can do it if we make that choice. So however you share your stories do so like our lives depend upon it.

Sunday Reflection: Storytelling #sundaythoughts

One could say life is a story. Everything we do in life is recalled from memory to be told later on. Whether it comes from a book, music, movie, or in a campfire there is a tale worth telling.

Some of the great story tellers such as Shakespeare, Austen, Lewis, Twain, Haley, Swift, Paisley, Cash, Spielberg, Howard and Young and many more have captured our imagination and challenged us to think differently. We have learned much from their art and vision.

Family stories can be the most colorful and something that ties the past with the present and the future.

In scripture, the feeding of the five thousand is one where there are lots of characters to choose from. Jesus was doing some cool things to bring community together and performing a miracle in the process. Talking about a big fish story.

Blogging and social media are telling our stories in real time. We get to share our experiences in this life with one another as it happens. As a long-time blogger its quite fun to see how other people live and where they are coming from. Its like travelling without having to leave your home.

Movies are a way to share a story in a communal way where people can see different things from the same source. Videos from YouTube are an important part of giving voice to people and to offer instructions on how to navigate life.

Stories are important. We all have one. Let’s be sure to insure the transmission of our lives and culture into tomorrow. There is much to be learned from it all. Tell us the story good people.

Rambling About Story Telling From My Point Of View

In sales its good tell the story of the product you are selling. In telling the story of blood donation the story is that lives are being saved. To me there is power in telling your story because it helps people to relate a little. Sharing the message you want people to hear is hard work but it can be done. People aren’t stupid so your story needs to be good and honest. Sometimes the story is needed to convince people to move, to do something, to advance a mission. Whatever your life story be willing to tell it, someone can benefit from your experience.
