One of the most underutilized tools in the modern educational toolbox, stories capture and hold the imagination. They provide a power, passion, and immediacy that educators often can’t convey through lecture.  Moreover, truths cast in a narrative form hold their integrity in the memory with impressive longevity – a consequence critical to church planters working in preliterate communities.

WRG considers the narrative form a product of genius. Our trainers continue to explore the strengths of oral and symbol-based narratives and to examine how stories can be used to reshape worldviews. If story is indeed a metaphor for life, then narrative may be the lifeblood of the cross-cultural church.

Below are some articles on narrative which you may find helpful.
