Could you say more about  what you mean by "process echoing the storyline"?

re: "Christian Practices"

The old name for that is "life application," and I whole-heartedly agree. I've seen too many lessons that lacked life application (or try to cram it in during the "closing").  On the other hand, I've seen too many lessons which HURRY BY the scripture, as if the story is only the jumping off point.  I suspect both of these past practices are two reasonis why we have millions of former Sunday School kids in the US who don't remember their lessons and don't go to church.

Some time ago I wrote about teaching transformationally. An early version of that article used to be in the Rotation Articles section, but has been updated and can now be found here, titled: "Information to Transformation: Writing and teaching lessons that get to the heart of the matter".
