Stories Connect Us (part 4): Resolution

At the end of the story we find the resolution. The conflict is resolved, the protagonist has overcome, the setting has changed. We use the same term in music when a dissonant chord moves to a consonant chord, it resolves. The tension is gone and we can rest.

What image will you envision to bring your conflict to resolution? How will you allow your audience to move past conflict? How can they find peace. You can choose a picture that evokes peaceful thoughts (a calm nature scene) or conjure an image that shows how the conflict in your story has come to an end. I was drawn to this image because it speaks to how all resolution starts with individuals. We are responsible for peace.

How can you communicate resolution and change the next time you preach?
