Biblical Storytelling Weekly for Advent offers a relaxed but in-depth journey through Advent stories in Mark and John, along with suggestions for learning and telling (or reading) the stories. This is designed as an Advent journey for both Biblical storytellers and liturgists who prefer to read! It’s not an introduction to Biblical storytelling as such, though learners will encourage one another to learn parts of the story by heart, as desired. Exploration of difficult as well as familiar sections of the stories of John the Baptist’s proclamation, Christ’s Incarnation, and Jesus’ call to hope and watchfulness will help learners develop skills for either telling or reading it. In churches that follow the Revised Common Lectionary, Advent 2023 begins the year of Mark, who offers no Christmas story, so it’s a great time for study of the “other meaning of Advent.”
