Social Stories is a connection point, a place where all of our ideas come together to become something more. Every episode is a short story that came from a prompt submitted by someone just like you. We believe in the power of story, and we're excited to take this journey with you.
S2:E8 - The Last Lighthouse
You work for a secret organization whose function is to keep the world operating. You do your part by maintaining a lighthouse ... but not in the normal sense of the word. And then one day, the operators of the other three lighthouses hail you over the radio with terrible news ... When the pressure is on to not only survive but to keep your lighthouse in working order, what do you do? This week's prompt comes from Nicole Thomas: "When the last lighthouse in the world went out."
S2:E7 - A Taxidermy Herd
Ben Bentley notices something strange about a pasture that lies in his path to and from work everyday: there's a herd of goats which appear to be unmoving ... in the midst of his investigation, his life changes in a way he never expected. This week's Story Prompt comes from Jeff Joiner: "I noticed the goats in the small pasture ... were not real."
S2:E6 - Black Thumb
Pearl is new in town. A couple of her school's most popular girls try to prank her at their town's abandoned, "haunted" house. Their prank works ... too well. This week's Story Prompt is a picture submitted by Seth White. Check out our Instagram page, @socialstoriespodcast, to see it!
S2:E5 - Heist
This story is self-contained, so you don't need any other episodes for it to make sense, BUT Heist is technically a continuation of Season 1, Episode 4, "Button," and this story will be just a little richer if you have the full context of that previous episode. This week's Story Prompt comes from Taylor Latham: "Driving as fast as I could, I knew that either way this would be the last drive I ever took."
S2:E4 - Lost Fire
Tommil is blind—he was born that way—but he has a mysterious ability to see what will happen next. This is his story. The story of a fallen prince seeking redemption and a captured peasant girl desperate to find her sister. The Story Prompt this week came from Shane Doster: "Although he was physically blind, he could see what would happen next."
S2:E3 - An Escaped Convict
What happens when a weasel gets loose in the house? Kellan is not ready for the mayhem that ensues and neither are you. This week's Story Prompt comes from Lexie McKelvey: "It all started when that darn weasel got out of her cage."
Loving the stories!
As an avid podcast listener I highly recommend this one. It is different from all of the others, will make you hang tight to see how the story ends, and will make you appreciate the true gift this storyteller has developed.
This podcast is truly life changing. It’s real. It’s deep. It’s relatable. It’s charming. It’s LIFE CHANGING. Thank you, Jon, for putting your heart out there. Thank you for making this podcast. Thank you for your love for Jesus.
Jon’s got quite a gift. Let his imagination take you on a ride that will leave you quite ready for the next story. I certainly look forward to future stories.
