The Bible, by Heart: biblical storytelling as spiritual discipline
Our sacred stories are meant to be told, out loud. Dried ink on beloved Bibles carried through the generations remind us of the power of God’s words, yet sometimes keep us from remembering holy scripture’s oral roots. Recovering this ancient practice equips us to bear witness to the story of God and God’s people, not merely chapters and verses.Our Bibles are full of fascinating narratives just waiting to be lifted up off the page and placed down into the midst of God’s people. This workshop will address the what and why of biblical storytelling, its history in the ancient oral traditions, before diving headfirst into the how. We will look at a specific story during our time together, and hopefully participants will be halfway towards learning it themselves (or farther!) by the time we’re done.
