No Monkey Business!

The Evolution of a Story

It’s another Lighten Up MONDAY! There are two clips in today’s post. The first clip was filmed in about 1990 in front of 11,000 people and the second was filmed about 21 years later and became part of a motion picture titled Fully Alive.

They are both on the same subject but end up going in different directions. I thought you might like to see how the emphasis of a story grows and changes over the years.


This clip was taken from the DVD, Healing the Wounded Heart. For more info or to purchase, click here.

This second clip starts out the same but hang in there – see if you can see the subtle changes and the different direction the clip took at the end.

So which one do you like the best? 

Do you have stories in your family that have grown and changed over the years?

  1. Both times excellent tellings. From the glimpses of the audiences, I imagine part of the difference in the telling is the intended audience. First appeared to have been a youth rally, you needed to paint more of a picture. The second didn’t need as much of a roadmap. 😉 Excellent as always sir!

  2. I remember seeing you, Ken, many times when I was a teenager in south Florida. I remember distinctly your story about the barf bags and also the super sheep. Do you still tell those stories?
