Gospel Outreach with Media
Children of the Light - Using a Book Series to Reveal the Nine Fruit of the Spirit

Mary and Leanne, what a blessing your presentation and comments have been to the conference!
When contemplating and teaching "Christian storytelling," whether in print or on the screen,I've often puzzled about ways of getting the gospel integrated smoothly into the story. It's much easier in stories to portray good behavior (even easier and more interesting to portray bad behavior), but of course, the essence of Christianity is not good behavior but the forgiveness of sins won for us by our Lord Jesus on the cross. Without that our stories promote moralism, not Christianity. Have you also puzzled about how to make the gospel integral to the story, and not seemingly dragged in by the hair? How have you managed that?
