Story Divine is back!


Casey FitzGerald tells the story of Jesus' temptation and more.

 

Story Prompts:


1) Tell a story about DESIRE. (How did that desire manifest in positive ways? Where did the temptation part of the desire creep in?)

2) Tell a story about a boundary you had to set--a "no" you had to say in order to focus on your primary "yes." (How did you do it? How did it make you feel? How was your life/ministry enhanced by it? Would you make the same choice now?)

Thanks to Oraly Spatz for her answer to my story prompt. You can read the rest HERE.

Thanks to Richard Bruxvoort Colligan for the story prompt! Check out his work at www.PsalmImmersion.com and the Pulpit Fiction Podcast.

Story Prompts:

For Isaiah: Tell a story of an experience of witnessing something that made you see yourself more clearly.

For John: Richard Bruxvoort Colligan suggests that we tell a story of our own experience of power...such as "ones that have been destructive or disruptive in our past, ones we name helpful and healing, one's where the jury's still out what it was about." Thanks, Richard!!!

Casey FitzGerald tells the story of the arrest of John and Peter from Acts (4:1-22). (The Revised Common Lectionary story only covers vv. 5-12.)

 

Questions to prompt your storytelling:

Where were you? (Consider the sights, smells, sounds, etc.)
Who was there? (Was anyone noticeably absent?)
What were you (or others) feeling at the time? Thinking? Has that changed over time?
What actions occurred?
Did you have a sense of God in the moment? Has that changed over time?
