Storyline journal

A compelling vision of the kingdom

Within Teaching for Transformation’s framework, the learning of every classroom is rooted in a compelling vision of the kingdom. The fundamental purpose of the core practice Storyline is to connect the learning and the learners to God’s story. Using language and imagery that connects both to the curriculum and the kingdom story, Storyline ensures learners see the story that invites them to be a part of how God is making all things new. A Teaching for Transformation classroom displays artifacts and evidence of students connecting their learning to God’s story of renewal.

"If I have a hope, it’s that God sat over the dark nothing and wrote you and me,specifically, into the story, and put us in with the sunset and rainstorms as though to say, Enjoy your place in my story. The beauty of it means you matter, and you can create within it even as I created you. I believe there is a writer outside ourselves, plotting a better story for us, interacting with us, even whispering a better story into our consciousness." - Donald Miller, A Million miles in a thousand years
