Illustration Station

As I am an NPR listener, I have truly appreciated their highlighting of the StoryCorps project.  If you are a teacher/communicator, attempt to use a few appropriate stories in your next presentation to surface their emotive power.

NOTE:  This Sunday I will attempt to use three of these stories in a expositional journey of the text, filled with various “simulations” to experience the story behind the verses.  A definite “playful experimentation” from every angle…but you never know unless you try!

  1. Dave, I am a huge NPR fan and have enjoyed the StoryCorps project. Can’t wait to see what you do with it on Sunday. Remind me to tell you sometime my thoughts about sharing the Gospel and stories.

  2. Hi Dave,

    Thank you so much for spreading the word about StoryCorps! It’s wonderful to see these stories gain new life through the people who hear and pass them on – we hope they continue to resonate through your presentation!

    I wanted to let you know that we’ve released our book “Listening Is An Act of Love” in paperback, and also launched a set of do-it-yourself tips and tools to make recording these conversations accessible for anyone. As the holidays draw nearer, we’re hoping to pass on a gift idea: pairing a copy of “Listening Is An Act of Love” with a copy of a personally-recorded conversation (or with a request for a friend or loved one to tell you about their life). This adds a meaningful touch to the holiday season, and gives that special someone incredible inspiration to share their own stories! The book and DIY tools can be linked to at

    Thanks again and best wishes for the New Year!
