The course description is as follows: Christianity is a religion passed on through storytelling. The Bible, for the most part, is a collection of oral stories that were told, remembered, and handed down within a community of storytellers. Through presentation, contemplative exercises, theological reflection, and a variety of narrative practices, participants will encounter the power of personal storytelling for healing, spiritual formation, community building, outreach, social justice, and other ministries. Participants will learn how to tell their story and how to lead storytelling events within their church and larger community.
