How Would Jesus Tell the Story?

This workshop explores the teaching strategies described in Christ’s interactions in the Gospels and teaches your team how to use those same strategies how to share the Word in the world today. By using the translation template, we can wrap our scriptural text with a story that lends context and practical meaning. For example, imagine you are Lazarus. You have been dead for 4 days, and now your friend Jesus raises you from the dead. On Monday, when you do back to work, how do you explain why you weren’t at work on Friday? The challenge of sharing the words of a different time, written in different place, left in different language and describing a different world doesn't need to be intimidating.

Your Third Chance

Most of us get three chances to experience the parent/child relationship. While most of us are active participants in our own childhood with our parents, and in our parenting of our own children, we tend to forget that we are active participants in our childhood with our Heavenly Father. This CD looks at what our Children teach us about God, what God Teaches us about parenting and what we teach our children about both.
