I’m off this week to speak at the “Story” conference in Chicago. Billed as “a conference for the creative class,” it’s a gathering of artists and ministers trying to figure out fresh ways to communicate Christian truths. I’m planning to talk about the roles stories played in my own conversion and about why I haven’t cleaned up my storytelling act any since plunking for God. I get asked about these things often and it’s a difficult subject to address without time to speak at some length.
I understand this event is sold out, but there’s a waiting list on the website if you want to try to cadge a last minute ticket. Should be interesting anyway.
