Biblical Storytelling for Just About Everyone
Presented by Rev. Bert Marshall, Interim Pastor of Centre Church.
A presentation and workshop on how to tell our sacred stories out loud and why it matters.
Unleash your inner storyteller and make the biblical texts come alive in worship, at special events, and on street corners. Our time together will include examples, group participation, music, and some learning about oral tradition.
We will also explore how investing the biblical stories with voice and sound effects interpretation and opens up new vistas on hearing and understanding.
