The Power of Story

Power of Story

“Tell ‘em there’s power in Story,” the old gnome whispered. “Power ter heal and power ter hurt. Tell ‘em ter use their stories ter heal.”

~from The Wishing Map

The above quote is the tagline for my life and the source of my blog site’s title. It’s a mission to which I recommit (however imperfectly I may fulfill it) Every Day

    Reminds me of the old church song “We’ve a story to tell to the nations and story to tell to the World’. Or a ton of other church songs coming into my head right now.

    Terrific. I have a friend who started a new church in Houston a couple of years ago. Its name is The Story: Houston. (https://thestory.church). It is based on the exact premise you state here. Keep telling your story! You lift us up every day.
