Storytelling goes way, way back to the very beginnings of our history. At one time, the “Storyteller” was the teacher, the teller of cultural history, the one who entertained, helped educate the children, reminded the families of where they’ve come from and where they are going. Story-telling was both gift and art. While not everyone has the gift of storytelling, we all know the importance of stories. Sometimes we just want the familiarity of the old, old stories to remind us of where we’ve come from and to better understand where we’re going.
Beginning May 7, we’re going to tell some of the old stories from our Old Testament. We can all look forward to spending some time with these old friends and hearing how their stories intersect with our story.
