Uncommon Series: Stories & Illustrations (Curriculum w/ CD)
by Jim Burns
The best communicators have something in common, they have an incredible ability to illustrate truth through an appropriate story. They are following in the footsteps of the Master Teacher, Jesus, who often illustrated His points with stories and parables. With the youth ministry resource Uncommon Illustrations and Stories, youth workers can find relevant stories that will grab and hold the attention of their audience. From heartfelt to hilarious, these intriguing stories will get youth thinking, and later discussing what they learned. They won’t soon forget the Wright brothers and their father who refused to believe man would fly, Helen Keller’s teacher who lived in a mental institution as a young girl, the difficulty of swimming from California to Hawaii and the man who flew 10,000 feet in the air above Los Angeles in a lawn chair. These fun illustrations and stories can be used in any high school or junior high setting, including church groups, retreats or special events.
