Try something fun with a lot of new ideas for using biblical storytelling in worship and teaching. This workshop expands on the methods taught in Biblical Storytelling I. It explores several storytelling genres as well as telling the biblical text, including midrash, chancel drama, first-person storytelling, puppetry and more. The workshop also offers specific ideas for using and not abusing voice and body, enhancing tellings with props, digital media and more with children and adults. It also suggests ways to deepen your practice of this art as a personal spiritual discipline. Anyone who is already practicing the art of storytelling, biblical or secular, is welcome. Biblical Storytelling I is an excellent starting place for those new to the art but is not required. In this three-week workshop, you will dive deeper into developing your unique storytelling voice, expand your technique and polish your art. This workshop will be led by the Rev. Beth Galbreath, a Network of Biblical Storytellers International former vice president. Biblical Storytelling I is not a prerequisite for Biblical Storytelling II, but previous storytelling experience is highly recommended.
