“We live in a world where bad stories are told, stories that teach us life doesn't mean anything and that humanity has no great purpose. It's a good calling, then, to speak a better story. How brightly a better story shines. How easily the world looks to it in wonder. How grateful we are to hear these stories, and how happy it makes us to repeat them.” - Donald Miller, A Million Miles in a Thousand Years
Story telling is a gift. And my friends, JJ Starr has it. He has such a heart for sharing stories in communities all around the world where restoration is happening. Above is a short documentary that he just finished about a young man who has a story worth telling. I dare you to watch it and not cry. Seriously, I dare you.
