We learned it in kindergarten — everyday eloquence — how to show and tell. So why did we stop? Why did we formalize presentations? Why did we turn spontaneous heart-felt sharing into standardized, stuffy sermons!
The Bible teaches that church meetings are gatherings for regular people to show and tell. Let’s get back to the simple, the profound, the powerful, biblical basis for church. (Check it out in 1 Corinthians 14:26.) Christianity is not to follow a program, but to follow and obey a presence — the living, resurrected Jesus Christ.
–“The best gift we can give ourselves is learning how to show and tell.”
–“Our goal is simple, help others see what we see.”
–“Lead with the truth and the heart will follow.
–“When we tell the truth, we connect with our audience, we become passionate, and we find self-confidence. When we tell a story, we make complex concepts clear, we make ideas unforgettable, and we include everyone.”
–“We struggle when we forget the basic steps we learned in kindergarten: show and tell.”
–“There is no such thing as a boring topic. There is only boring teaching.”
–Quotes from Dan Roam in the book Show & Tell: How Everyone Can Make Extraordinary Presentations.
