Hello BBCers,

Telling the Story 

Luke 1:3-2:38 

I’ve read a few “page turners” in the past. The story gripped me enough that I kept saying, “just one more chapter… just one more chapter.” Before I knew it, the day was over, and I had finished the book! But then if someone asked me about the book, it wouldn’t be enough to say “It was good.” Most of the time, the person would want to know something about it. So I’d need to be able to tell the story well enough to convey what was going on (in this case, within the limits of not spoiling it for them). We have a “page turner” story to tell, and one that does not need a “spoiler alert.” But do we tell it?

Merry Christmas! 

Roger
