The Art of Storytelling: Developing Discernment in an Age of Distraction

Join Mark Hamby as he explores how the Hebraic art of storytelling cultivates the discipline of discernment. Through the story of Ecclesiastes 12 and prodding influence of the Ancient Shepherd, the biblical principles of delight, truth, and wisdom will help parents and children gain essential knowledge to distinguish between good and evil, fact and fiction. As children and young adults develop their worldview through the exercise of their senses (Hebrews 5:12-14), they will gain an objective filter to test all things (1Thess. 5:21-22). Finally, we’ll discover how the five eternal truths parallel Romans 4 & 5, demonstrating how children can be fully convinced that all things really do work together for good to those who love God (Romans 8 & Eccles. 3).

The Epic Battle between Wisdom and Folly

Join Mark Hamby as he takes you on a tour of Proverbs chapters 1-9, demonstrating why the “fear of God” is a prerequisite to His love and how the fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge and wisdom. If this is truly the beginning, then why do we search for knowledge in so many places? Learning to love what God loves and hate what God hates will be foundational to a child’s worldview. As the story unfolds, experience the unforgettable tensions between Wisdom’s ways and Folly’s entrapments. Both Wisdom and Folly promise prosperity, prestige, protection, and pleasure. Learning how to distinguish between Folly’s false promises and Wisdom’s guiding truths will help children to develop discernment to avoid false flatterers (peers), beguiling beauty (pornography), and enticing touches (addictions). Through the knowledge gained in this seminar, parents will be equipped to help their children reclaim their vitality and virtue!
