Proverbs 29:18 says, “Where there is no vision the people perish, but happy is he who keeps the teaching.” After the vision is made plain, it is to be continually shared and taught to people as it grows, becoming reality. Writing is very important seminary trained stained learn that writing is telling stories. Even Jesus loved telling stories. As a matter of fact, most of his teachings were through storytelling. If we write the vision down, it will come to life.
At Gammon Theological Seminary we understand the importance of writing and storytelling and we want our secular, academic and church communities to access to this knowledge. On July 22 – 25, 2019, Gammon hosted its first Writers Retreat and it was a tremendous success. Dr. Daniel Black presented a workshop entitled “Am I Saying it Right? Precision and Exactitude in the Art of Writing”; Ms. Vikki Jones owner of VHM Publisher presented a workshop “Getting Published” and Rev. Cynthia Jackson presented workshop was called “Writing and Self-Publishing”. One of our facilitator said “there are people waiting to hear your story and they will only hear it through your voice-tone. Open your mouth and tell your story!”
Habakkuk 2:2 says, “And the Lord answered me: Write the vision, and make it plain on tablets, that he who reads it may run.” When it is written down and implemented, those you lead can ‘run’ with it and all will see it succeed!
Gammon’s next Writers Retreat is schedule for August 19- 22. We hope invite YOU to join us in learning new tools so that you are inspired to write and tell YOUR own story.
