The Lively Word: Folktales, Faith Stories, and How to Tell Them

In this engaging, participatory workshop, the Rev. Joanne Epply-Schmidt will teach some techniques and skills that go in to telling a Folktale. This process will culminate in teams of 3-4 people working together on a story to present to the group.

The afternoon will be devoted to taking Biblical stories (pre-selected by Joanne), stripping them down to their most essential elements, and then applying all the skills learned in the morning session to build the stories back up into a telling that is both theologically responsible and a vibrant, creative, living Word.

By 4pm all participants will be Biblical Storytellers too.

Workshop will be in the Christ Church Cathedral Park Room on Saturday, January 27 from 9am­ – 4pm.
$50 per person, lunch included (bursaries available).
