Lent Bookclub Part 8: The wonder of stories

Chapter 3: Listening; Part 2: Listening with the Senses

This chunk of the book is mostly about listening to God with our senses, and I figure that’s quite familiar to many of you, but I do delve a little into the sixth sense … no, not seeing dead people … the sense of imagination. If our five physical senses tell us about the world around us, then our imagination tells us about the world as it could be, and if you’re a follower of jesus, that’s quite an important sense to develop, because he was all about imagining a better, brighter, kinder world and then living it into reality.

This episode of the podcast is me talking more about imagination and the importance of story. We learn to love stories when we’re young because God speaks through them. And we still need them now, to help us hear him telling us the sorts of things he wants to tell us.

And there’s a little challenge at the end to do with remembering stories you loved as a child … so why not comment below and tell us what your favourite story was and why you loved it.
