Tell Me a Story: Old Testament Stories as Narrative and Drama
Patricia Dutcher-Walls
Sorrento Centre
August 7-13, 2016

The Old Testament/Hebrew Bible is full of intriguing and engaging stories that reflect the faith journey of God’s people. This course will help participants learn skills in reading biblical tales to increase enjoyment and understanding of their narrative art and theological insights. Then, using our narrative study, we’ll perform both dramatic readings and full dramatizations of the stories to engage kinesthetic and audio learning. The combination of narrative analysis and dramatic readings provides immediate applications for both youth and adult Bible studies in local congregations and resources for worship liturgies in alternative ways to listen to God’s word. Participants are encouraged to raid their home closets and dress-up boxes to bring potential costume and prop elements – scarves, ribbons, robes, a hobby horse?, baskets, old towels, earthenware jars and bowls, canvas bags….and bring your imagination!
