CCC Prez has the "Inside Story"
Whether you know about the conference or not, or are familiar with its origins or not I think it is a worthy conference to take note of.
This particular conference was born out of a movement I have been following for a couple years. It was born out of the 2004 Lausanne Conference in Thailand as a special taskforce on “Making Disciples of Primary Oral Learners”. What came out of that meeting was the OneStory Partnership, the International Orality Network (or ION) and other key missions connections. I was at the 2005 International Orality Network Conference last year and I remember hearing that the following years the ION conference would branch into two conferences. One concerned with oral communicators internationally and another concerned with Secondary Orality in the postmodern West. The latter conference was called the “Inside Story" Conference for the postmodern or concrete-relational communicators. Steve Douglas has taken lead as coordinator for this conference.
Word is that Steve Douglas is going to talk about his own Bible narrative work in some university in Florida that he says can be turned into a effective and transferable model.
