Remember 3 Crowns

The goal of 3 Crowns is NOT to show the video. The goal of 3 Crowns is to equip you to sketch out the presentation on a scrap of paper, like a napkin, and leave it with a friend. As you sketch it, you want to be able to verbalize, while you are drawing, what each element in the drawing means. Seem overwhelming? It’s easier than you think. Here a four quick tips to help you memorize and share Crowns:

  1. GOD, MAN, CHRIST, RESPONSE
    First, remember that the 3 Crowns stand for 3 different actors in the drama of redemption: GOD (top), MAN (right), and CHRIST (left). Say that out loud and point at each circle: “God, Man, Christ” (repeat that a few times). Then, notice the presentation ends with a RESPONSE (bottom-arrow). This is a very common way to share the Gospel. Remember: God, Man, Christ, Response. Got it?
  2. EIGHT WORDS, SAME LETTERS
    Second, realize that you only need to memorize 8 words total. That’s it! Notice each of the words, at each arrow, start with the same letter (e.g. Sin/Separation, Turn/Trust, etc.). So if you can remember one of the words (e.g. “Raised), the other word will likely be triggered by the first letter (e.g. “Restored”).
  3. 3 CROWNS, 3 CONCEPTS
    Third, remember that each crown represents a different concept: God as King, Man as Rebel, and Christ as Lord. Take a mental picture of each crown-circle, noticing the imagery that details these truths.
  4. PRACTICE, USING YOUR OWN WORDS
    Finally, practice sketching the pictures and explaining the truth in your own words. Don’t try to memorize the video word-for-word. Rather, seek to understand the concepts and explain then in your own way. When you understand the theology behind the presentation, the pictures and words simply function as memory-triggers to make sure you share a robust, yet simple, Gospel-presentation.
