"Share a story - Change the World" . . . for Real

"SHARE A STORY, CHANGE THE WORLD" is, when it comes to biblical storytelling, much more than just a catchy motto, catch-phrase or slogan - it's a real possibility. Not just with children, but with adults, as well. With "church-attenders," and with prison inmates.
One of the most powerful aspects of biblical telling is that the life that is changed may well be, and often is, the life of the teller.

Going through papers that I needed to file and found notes that I wanted to save about Jesus as a storyteller. I think the author is Ken Sapa. He suggested that Jesus used 4 principles in communicating with his audience.

1) He invited others to talk.

2) His teaching connected to life.

3) He engaged his listeners.

4) He took advantage of teachable moments.

As present day storytellers, I think we can apply this with our audiences too.

a short story, The Faithful Woman, http://ow.ly/RQ9rW, A woman faced with many challenges remains true and strong in her faith. For Eliyahu haNovi (Elijah the Prophet) only comes to the aid of the truly righteous.

I used the "Resurrection Eggs" (a dozen colored eggs with objects that represented the Easter Story from the Bible) this week with a group of 5th graders. I found them very attentive to what would come out of each egg as the story progressed. Has anyone else used them? How did the children respond?

I would love to see a picture of the Bible Story quilt. Can you post?

Another great idea!  Reminds me of the Ethiopian Bible story paintings.  Hmmmm.

Please let me know how it goes for you.  My dear friend made me a Biblical quilt.  Each block represents a story from the Bible - 12 in all.  That's what I'm working on now.  I'm going to take it with me and let folks pick and choose from the 12 stories.  I could tell some - or all, depending on what they want.

Thanks, Pam.  Great way to do it.  Also gets you talking with people about their churches.  That's something I confess I was brought up not to do, but this shows why it's time to reexamine that idea.

Other ideas are also welcome.
