How can one express that which is inexpressible? How does one convey a truth that transcends description? The Parable, is a form of storytelling that exists in every spiritual tradition. It is a way of exploring universal truths. Parables often use metaphorical language which allows people to discuss more complex or difficult ideas.
I hope this series can explore concepts more specific to LDS, customs, culture, theology, and doctrine using stories. I invite you to write me your interpretations and understanding of the stories shared on this series. I will then post a follow-up episode where I read your responses so we may all learn from each other.
To send me your interpretation email me at [email protected]. If you can, in the header of the email, write the Episode number so I know which episode you are referring to. I look forward to your responses.
