• Our hope-filled future is bound up in sharing the story of Jesus, in discipling others, in bringing those disciples together into communities of believers, and in developing and releasing those believers to create other communities... till Jesus the King comes again!

Short, short stories

matchesFor sale: baby shoes, never worn. – Ernest Hemingway

In the 1920s, Ernest Hemingway’s colleagues bet him he couldn’t write a complete story in just six words. They paid up. Hemingway is said to have considered it his best work.

Six word stories have caught on and you can find imaginative collections with a quick Google search. Can you tell the World Team story in six words?

Let’s say you’re in line at the market wearing a World Team shirt. The man behind you asks “What’s that, a sports team?” You have less than a minute to answer before your change is in your pocket and you are on your way. How would you answer him?

Granted, you would have time for more than 6 words in the market scenario, but let’s get the creative juices flowing and hear how you’d share the heart of World Team in six words! Maybe it’s a story specific to your field or someone you know. Or maybe you can capture the essence of World Team’s global purpose. Have some fun thinking afresh about our ministry and how we can share it with others.

Post your six word stories here and check back to see what others have to say.
