How storytelling helps us explore our lives and meet God in new ways.
Everyone is a storyteller, according to Michael Williams, and all of us are on a spiritual journey. Storytelling helps us make sense of our lives, the world around us, and God. When we tell stories, we speak a world into beingjust as God did in the creation accounts in the book of Genesis.
Spoken into Being is both a guide to telling our own stories and a reminder that we have been spoken into being as part of a much larger story. It is a voyage of discovery for those of us who wish to deepen our experience of God's presence in our lives.
Employing poetry, personal narrative, and retellings of biblical stories, Michael Williams leads us to a deeper knowledge of the power of narrative. Storytelling is not simply a means of expressing spiritual insights already learned but also a way of exploring our lives and the world around us in order to encounter the divine presence anew.
