A Call to Grandparenting: Storyteller

Cavin Harper, Executive Director

I believe with all my heart that a key role grandparents are given in the family is that of storyteller. The power of story is undisputed when it comes to impressing upon hearts and minds the truths of God’s world and work in our lives. Stories stick in our mind. They flesh out truth so that it becomes more than information. It is something we can visualize and vicariously experience… and thus, it comes alive in us.
 
Jesus taught with parables (stories) constantly, and while some seemed more like riddles to the hearers, the impact of these stories are still transforming lives today. The Bible is God’s story… and ours. As grandparents, we need to tell our stories so that the next generations can see how these stories are woven into the bigger reality of God’s redemptive story.
