Network of Biblical Storytellers (USA):
What is Biblical Storytelling?
The core activity of the Network is telling the sacred stories of the biblical tradition in post-literature, digital culture. This practice is rooted in a communal process of internalization through scholarly inquiry and prayer.
We encourge varieties of expression and presentation of the sacred stories in oral, written and communication systems.
There are many kinds of biblical storytelling from midrash, to contemporization, to first person monologues.
The Network of Biblical Storytellers advocates all kinds of storytelling but commends especially the practice of telling the texts as they’re been traditional to us.
We have discovered biblical storytelling as a spiritual discipline that involves first committing a narrative text of scripture to deep memory (not memorizing but ‘internalizing’ the story as images and feelings) and then engaging with the text in a lively ‘telling’, a sacred act that binds teller and listeners in community.
