Story the Bible (Telling God’s story) – Maleny, SE Qld
22-25 Nov 2018
Story The Bible workshop, Thursday evening 22nd – Sunday afternoon 25th November 2018
Biblical story telling is taking off around the world as a way to share the Word of God with those who would not normally read or even listen to it.
Story the Bible (Sharing God’s Story) is a three day workshop in which you will learn five skills of a good Bible storyteller: how to –
- Craft stories that present the Biblical content in an interesting way
- Revise and polish them to ensure they are simple to tell, accurate to Scripture and easy to remember
- Tell your stories in a way that grips your audience, with facial expressions and body language reinforcing the words
- Teach them to others, that they may tell and teach them too and the Word of God may spread around the world
- Lead a study on the story that challenges the hearers to apply the truths of Scripture to their own lives.
