"The Words are Fire..."
What is Biblical Storytelling?
Generations before the narratives of the Bible were written, they were part of an oral tradition shared in faith communities. Today’s biblical storytelling recaptures the heart of the early church by performing bible narratives to inform and teach about God’s Word.
However, unlike secular storytelling, sacred storytelling recognizes the transformative power of God’s word to heal and deliver. Modern biblical storytelling also crosses the generational digital divide, and can make ample use of technology to communicate ancient truths.
Margaret-Ann is available to perform the following biblical texts for your church, during your worship service, retreat, coffee shop, Bible Study, or conference. Many churches employ storytelling instead of reading scripture during their worship services.
