The Storyteller Engaging With the Parables About this Life Night The Gather is a small group elimination game using childhood stories. The Proclaim ties together our experiences of stories and Jesus’ parables. The Break gives the teens an opportunity to create a parable based on their life experiences. The Send is a reflection on the parable of the mustard seed. Goal of This Night The goal of The Storyteller is to connect teens’ experiences of the power of story with Jesus’ preferred style of teaching. Catechism # 133 # 2607 Scripture Mark 4:30 -32 John 10:1 -21 Key Concepts • Stories are important because they connect us culturally, allowing us to experience empathy, gain perspective, and understand a message or principle profoundly. • Jesus used stories such as parables as a primary way to teach about the Kingdom of God throughout His earthly ministry. • The parables of Jesus help us understand God’s relationship with us, and our experience of listening to them can initiate our relationship with Him.
