A spiritual foundation for family life

My family plays a fun game on camping trips. Once we’ve settled into our tent for the night, one of us begins telling a story. It usually has a setting, some characters, and a basic plot. After a few minutes, the first storyteller says, “And then ….” And then the next person picks up telling the story where the first storyteller left off, adding his or her own twists and turns. 

This goes on until everyone in the family has had several turns to speak, and the story has gone around the tent several times and changed significantly from where it started. It always causes us lots of laughter, and it’s especially fun because it isn’t just one person’s story, but it’s a story that belongs to everyone in the family.
