Is it possible to bridge that gap that often painfully exists between
Sunday’s preaching and the realities of work, relationships, and simply
being human?

These stories arise from the acknowledgment of that costly struggle and a
determination to find relevant, authentic faith. They explore Biblical events
and characters from new perspectives and give voices to onlookers and
participants to show that they were, as we are, wrestling with questions of
suffering and doubt, rejection and reconciliation.

Storytelling leads us into the possibilities of imagination and empathy,
of truths felt more deeply than doctrine, and reminds us of a God who
created memorable characters, told unforgettable stories, and chose to
be part of the story of humanity.

Here contemporaries meet. Observers react. Women and men, met
fleetingly in the Gospel narratives, gain context and have a past and
future beyond that encounter. As each story unfolds, there is the
potential for recognition: for the characters, as they encounter one
another, and for ourselves to see what may have been familiar in fresh,
perhaps startling, ways.
