Story. Corporate America’s Perspective [Squirrel Inc.]

➡ Average Reading Time: < 1 minute

God's <abbr>EPIC</abbr> AdventureSSquirrel, Inc.. is sub-titled “A Fable of Leadership through Storytelling.” Its author is a well-known consultant for corporate America. His thesis is that “you can use the magic of narrative to lead.” He believes that you can transform change in an organization with six different kinds of stories that impact work and personal life. It is intriguing to see that those outside the church are picking up on what the church has had from its beginning but somehow got sidetracked over the past years as outside sources influenced the church instead of the church influencing the outside sources. While storytelling in cultures has never been dead, it has somewhat been diminished in the church in favor of the fragmentation of the Enlightenment.[ref]Stephen Denning. Squirrel Inc.

Jesus Followers


There are many synonyms to use for the word believer, which is the most common word for a person who has "converted" to follow Jesus. I have chosen "Jesus follower(s) or follower(s) of Jesus instead of the word believer in these presentations to allow the reader an opportunity to move away from the idea of believer which conjures up the possible thought of "ascent" to a set of doctrines that have been assembled by different groups over the centuries and show up in this day and age as a set of statements posted on web sites and other written material. These sets of beliefs are suggested by many as the ones that one should ascent to so that upon death the one who assents can go to heaven, i.e., just believe and you are good to go. Jesus followers/followers of Jesus suggest an action that one should take. Remember, Jesus told his disciples to follow him. Yes, belief is important, but one must move beyond belief to action.
