Confirmation Makeup Assignment for January 27th or 29th

Tonight we worked on session 2 of Echo the Story bible study with an interaction with the Disruption stories of Genesis 4-6

This story is fulled with wild events: a talking serpent, a worldwide flood, a huge boat full of animals-elements beyond what we would consider normal. So it may be easy for us to dismiss this story as a fairy tale. But like our first story, reality and metaphors - a word or phrase used as a symbol to describe something else - are mixed together. So if the Bible is full of metaphors, how do we see the the truths within them? Well, stories connect with us by opening our eyes to their deeper meaning. You are asked to listen to this story of Disruption and to paraphrase Mark Miller in Experiential Storytelling; let the story speak to your mind, body, emotions, spirit and will.
