Banishing Bible Boredom: Telling Sacred StoriesOctober 1, 2009
October 9 (7PM) and 10 (9AM) – Come and enjoy an evening of storytelling. Return on Saturday to engage the practice for learning and telling sacred texts in a way that opens human hearts to personal and social transformation. See www.brite.tcu.edu/nbs
On Friday evening, come and hear some of your favorite Bible stories in a new, refreshing way. The conference and workshops on Saturday will cover performance, how to learn and grow a story, and how to use storytelling in different ministry settings. Biblical storytelling can be a spiritual discipline that involves first ¿internalizing¿ the story and then engaging with the text in a lively telling, a sacred act that binds teller and listeners in community. This event is for anyone interested in biblical stories and their power to reveal to us the call and presence of God¿s voice in our time.
