The Power of Story

I can remember many years ago as a teen in our church youth group we read through a book entitled The Life of Christ in Stereo.  It took the Gospels and combined them into an easy-to-read, chronological narrative.  A significant part of the strength and power of the ministry of From The Top over the past 25 years, by God’s enabling, has been our highlighting of stories and themes from the Bible in an artistic way – through sight and sound.  To complement my ministry and leadership with From The Top I have read the Bible chronologically.  Now, from September 2017 until June 2018 I’m going to be working through the recent book The Story by Max Lucado and Randy Frazee (link: http://www.thestory.com/what-is-the-story/).  The Story is the story of the Bible, God’s great love affair with humanity condensed into 31 chapters bringing together the stories, poems and teaching of the Bible.  I’m embracing this opportunity for study, reflection, growth and service, and artistic expression.  As the President and Artistic Director of From The Top Arts, I want to invite any of you who are interested to join me on this creative journey.  I’ll be posting my responses as an artist to this book as I read through it, and Scripture.  I invite you to write with your responses – in text or via whichever artistic medium you create.  Please let me know if you would like your responses shared here on my blog The Restless Artist.  More details to come in the next few weeks.”  (‘The Story’ can be purchased off Amazon for under $18 [Kindle for $15]).
