Mount Memorial 203

In this seminar I will be talking about the importance of using stories to relevantly teach others about the Bible. Storytelling is a beautiful art that levels the social divides that we so often face. They are also an EXCITING form of communication. We have done a disservice by taking the Gospel, one of the most compelling stories ever told, and making it boring.

I'd like to talk about 3 specific areas:
-What effective exciting storytelling looks like.
-Why we should be using stories as a teaching tool (why we should biblically, why we should practically or why secular statistics say we should use stories to reach a wider audience.)
-How we can effectively put this into practice.

This will be a relatively interactive seminar.
