The art of storytelling

The remarkable power of stories

This video talks about how to use the art of storytelling in your preaching.

Imagine attending a funeral for your best friend. You're in church, heartbroken, and the priest delivers his homily by reading notes in a monotone voice. He refers to your friend as the faithful departed. Now imagine that same priest telling a wonderful story about your friend, one that reflects his courage, his humor, and his generosity. For a moment, it feels like your friend is alive again and in the room. Stories have remarkable power. Today we will talk about how to use the art of storytelling in your preaching.
