Missional Training #6 – The Need for Story


Caesar Kalinowski, of Soma Communities, shares how story is the main vehicle through which we learn.  He introduces us to sharing the bible through storytelling.  Watch the following video.  Consider the questions below as you watch. 

Also, If you’d like some additional information on storying, Caesar has compiled some related notes through his Story of God Training, which roughly follows the video.  It may help in retention of this teaching.

  1. What is the value of knowing the Story?
  2. Caesar read a quote from Stephen Shoemaker, “Our lives must find their place in some greater story, or it will find itself in some lesser story.”  What do you think that means?  What lesser stories have you put your life in?  What lesser stories are the people around you living in?
  3. Caesar said “Stories encourage community and communities encourage stories.” 
  4. How do stories change worldview? 
  5. What were some of the facts that you found interesting about the way people learn?
  6. Why do we need spread the bible through Story? 
  7. What’s the difference between dialogue and Q&A?

For my Core group, Continue with reading The Gospel-Centred Life, Chapter 6, look back to the Cross. Read it,  meditate on it, and live it.  We’ll talk about it the 29th.
