Introduction from Chip
The Boy & The Ogre
A life of living fully awaits us when we take the risk of listening to how God created us to feel, to need, and to connect with others who do the same. This story is about a "well meaning" caretaker who protects the boy by teaching him not to trust what he sees, not to trust what he feels, and not to speak what is inside of him. Even though the boy tries to be "good," the rules and script of the caretaker are actually keeping him from the life that God created. Join the boy and follow his story of freedom.
