Why We Need Parables and Fairy Tales
There’s an important reason we need parables and fairy tales.
Spiritual maturity is not about leaving our imagination behind.
Spiritual maturity fosters creativity and imagination which builds on and informs our faith. Even great pastors create great illustrations and mental pictures to help us understand the bible. Great Christian teachers do the same. We dare not equate growing up with losing any aspect of our creativity and imagination. As a creative or an artist, it is essential that we see this connection between our faith and our imagination.
Like C.S. Lewis, we should,
“..put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown-up.”
