Why should we read more short stories?

Getting hype for our Book Fair next year in Charlotte, NC! Hosts, Will Rose, TJ Blackwell, Christian Ashley, and Joshua Noel discuss 5 short stories they read recently and what makes short-form story telling so special! Each of the hosts picked one short story for us all to read, and author Alyssa Wong chose one of their own works for us to include as well!


What are examples of literacy? Why is reading important? What is the Fisher Queen about? How has the Church made excuses for awful behaviors in the past? Where is the line between the animal kingdom and mankind? What is the trigger warning for Galatea Madeline Miller? What is the theme of Galatea by Madeline Miller? Who was Galatea in myth? What is the main idea of A Sound of Thunder? What is the point of view of A Sound of Thunder? What happened at the end of A Sound of Thunder? Why is Bel and the Dragon not in the Bible? Is Bel and the Dragon Based on a true story? Is there a real dragon that Daniel meets? What is the message of All Tomorrows? What is the plot of the book All Tomorrows? Are there any humans left in All Tomorrows? We discuss all this and more in this one! Join in the conversation with us on Discord now!

Offering Plate

We may not be huge fans of the pressure that goes along with a literal offering plate, but we do hope you will consider giving to our ministry so we can afford to continue our work to educate and unite the Church!
We haven’t had any Tips yet :( Maybe you could be the first!
