L 29 The Power of Story to Change a Church (2017)


The stories we tell can shape us and the communities to which we belong. Jesus knew this, making imaginative use of story and parable to both convey his teaching and rework the very narrative of God’s people.

This booklet contends that the process of telling and sharing stories can be fundamental in shaping a church’s identity, meaning, relationships and future direction. It examines the biblical, ecclesial, and missional setting for story and sets outs ways for leaders to introduce story sharing in church.
