 The Power of Story to Change a Church

The Power of Story to Change a Church by Vaughan Roberts, Team Rector of Warwick, is just out from Grove Books. The Grove website says: "The stories we tell can shape us & the communities to which we belong. Jesus knew this, making imaginative use of story & parable to both convey his teaching and rework the very narrative of God’s people.

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