The Truth About Stories, Part 2

Three weeks ago we started a discussion of how stories impact and interact with our lives, looking particularly at Tom King's book The Truth about Stories. Here is a continuation of this talk, looking at the same situation from a different perspective.  We talk about the power of stories to grab us, to promise us a future, and to disappoint us horribly.  Specifically I talk about the story of the triumphal entry, and the story of the Romanian revolution of 1989. We then ask ourselves what is the story of Christianity, and begin a much larger discussion of God's relationship with stories.
