Andrew Stanton (Wall-E, Toy Story, Finding Nemo) starts off his TED Talk by saying:
"Storytelling is joke telling. It’s knowing your punchline, your ending, knowing that everything your saying from the first sentence to the last is leading to a singular goal – and ideally confirming some deeper truth about who we are as human beings."
What follows is 20 minutes of pure gold as he goes through what makes a great story, while mixing in some of his own story.
We're all story tellers.
As followers of Jesus we've been commissioned with the task of telling the redemption story.
Telling the story of a God that is alive and at work all around us.
Telling the story of a God who is in the restoration business.
Do yourself a favour and watch this.
