On Writing

Well, seeing how the next two weeks are going to be a hectic scramble of family, food, and road trips–I’ll just be sharing a few worthy quotes from other sources as I get a chance.  After all, that’s all you’re going to have time to read, anyway, right?!  🙂

Merry Christmas!

From Andree Seu in WORLD Magazine on November 20, 2010:

What is the purpose of telling stories, ever think of that?  Here is a better question: What is God’s purpose in telling stories?  God Himself is a storyteller, and we are to be “imitators of God” (Ephesians 5:1).  What kind of characters does He draw?  What is His agenda in telling the story?

I found much food for thought in her words to help in my own story-telling ventures.  God’s stories are never trite fluff–they always tell things as they really are–the only happy ending for any sinner is Christ–everything centers around Him.

Now THAT’s a good story.

    So true..did you know that Andree Seu goes to our church in Philly? And she wrote an awesome book called Won’t Let You Go Unless You Bless Me with an article in it about Matt’s brother! 🙂 Merry Christmas!
