Storytime: Preaching the Word. And Pictures.

Insert obligatory yeah, I’ve been away from the blog explanation here. Let’s all move on now, shall we?

The fantastic children’s minister at one of our churches hosted a program for parents about faith at home. It was great, but not really the focus of this post. She made an off-hand remark that when she goes to the library, she grabs a bunch of picture books to find ones she really likes for work and home. Then she read one of them to us. When was the last time you sat in a room of adults listening to a picture book being read? It’s fantastic.

Earlier this summer, we found a book at the library for Bliss that I just loved. Its about gifts and talents and getting confused about where our gifts are held. I ended up reading it during a sermon at church.

So, I’m taking at least some of the children’s minister’s advice, and starting to grab a stack of books at the library. When I find ones I like – good stories, possible metaphors, and hopefully beautiful pictures – I plan to put them here. Easy retrieval and all. Enjoy!
