I decided to try to do a “follow-up” post to last week’s post about “narrative construction” via a video. It’s my first time trying this, so it’s a little [lot?] rough. BTW, if you haven’t tried your hand at responding to last week’s post, give it a shot. You don’t have to post your answers, if you don’t want to.
The point is for us to think about the “logic” of a story. Watch the video and let me know if this idea makes sense or not, and if so, whether or not you think it matters as much as I do.
(P.S., let’s continue prayers/thoughts for Japan, the Philippines, Libya, Egypt, and Palestine… conversations such as these run a risk of sounding entirely out-of-touch with the world— and indeed we Christians often are. Let us always remember that our conversations about faith are empty, without genuine, real-life expressions of that faith expressing itself in love (Gal 5:6), particularly towards the poor, broken, and oppressed. )
