Money Stories: Myths, Villains, and Reimagining

Happy Halloween, a few weeks late! What do Cruella DeVil, a group of humble Christians singing praise songs, and you all have in common? Well, probably a lot more than nothing, but for today’s purposes, we’re talking about how we re-write our own stories, and how we use our imagination to do it! We have been remembering our stories, releasing the parts that don’t serve us anymore, and now we will reimagine them with compassion, for healing, and transformation! Scripture (not included in the episode) is about the Year of Jubilee continued – Leviticus 19:9-10 and 25:8-12.
