Sermon: That's My Story
Sermon Text - That's My Story
I'm a big believer in reading stories aloud to children.
When our kids were little, my wife and I read to them all the time. I'm sure that's one reason both of them have such good vocabularies. And when I was a kid, adults read aloud to me. My mom, of course, and I also remember my fourth-grade teacher reading Charlotte's Web to us. I remember my sixth-grade teacher reading Rabbit Hill to us.
Reading stories to children is powerful. Adults who listen to audiobooks know the power of stories out loud.
Stories are interesting. And stories can often be understood more quickly than heavy, conceptual language. Everybody tells stories, and listens to them. Everybody has stories. Everybody is a story.
