No-one can deny the power of short story. When a writer has less than 1000 words to create a plot with characters close enough to reality to be believable, while at the same time broad enough to reveal a greater reality – you have flash fiction at its finest. Jesus was the master story-teller. His method of teaching always involved sharing a parable that relayed deeper truth about certain issues, received by people who were at different points of their spiritual journey. May this blog be in the same vein.
