Welcome to story4all
Did you know...
Two-thirds of our world are oral communicators? That's 4 billion people who can't, don't or won't read or communicate by literate means!
This site, and the reason for the existence of story4all, has to do with relevant communication of the Good News of Jesus Christ with that "oral two thirds", so that passionate groups (churches) of His followers might be multiplied and the earth may be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea.
We believe deeply that the Message Jesus delivered was not only brought by Him "wearing our skin" (becoming like us and embodying the Message), but it came in a style best understood by His audience, and in a language of the heart.
It has been estimated that only 8% of people living in Israel during Jesus' time on earth were literate. However, He came and taught everyone (literate Pharisees, etc., as well as the mostly non-literate populace) through the medium of stories. Mark chapter 4 says "He was never without a story when He spoke". Jesus saw fit to deliver truths to the literate and non-literate alike through the medium of stories. He demonstrated through this that to be effective and to promote recall in the minds of those who hear, most of our communication should be housed in stories.
Ironically, 90% of all Christian ministry today occurs through literate communication styles!
Is it not now time to proclaim the best news the world has ever heard in a way that most people can grasp it ... through stories, drama, song and other oral means of presentation?
story4all believes something needs to be done about this imbalance.
