andrew peterson: he gave us stories | video

Hey, guys.  Sorry for the slight blogging break there.  I decided to take a short hiatus.  I was going to write an entire post on why I did, but I don’t trust myself to not say too much.  😄  I’ll just say that we’ve had a hard couple of weeks, but the light at the end of the tunnel is getting bigger, and I think we’ll be fine.  🙂  SO, all that to say, I’m back!!!  And I have quite a few posts lined up, starting with this one.  Thanks for sticking around.  🙂

My dad showed us the video below about a week or so ago, and I’ve been thinking about it ever since.  I’ve heard of Andrew Peterson before (I love his music {especially this song} and really want to read his book), and I really appreciated what he had to say about stories.  The message is wonderful for authors.  Here’s the description from the YouTube page:

Stories—true stories—of the patriarchs, the kings of Israel, Jesus, and his apostles make up a large portion of the Bible. Indeed, stories shape our way of looking at the world, and this is true also of fictional literature. In this session, Andrew Peterson will speak on his approach as a writer of fiction, and how his understanding of the Holy Spirit impacts that process. He will in turn speak to how he hopes readers, empowered by the Holy Spirit, interacts with what we read whenever we sit down with a good book.

Let me know what you think in the comments!
