If you know anything about what I actually do you know I spend a great deal of time training disciples and training trainers of disciples and all of this begins with a course called “The Story-Formed Life”.  I’m spending so much time in fact that I’m thinking about creating a site that will help equip people to use this training and the center of that site will be a video course.

The Bible uses narrative not simply because it’s an accessible tool for many people at various levels but also because its the BEST tool for us understanding his character and our identity.
