Rhythms of Storytelling
Many spiritual practices are rhythmic: simple, repetitive patterns that create a natural flow. When we practice rhythms in one form or another, they become familiar and easily integrated into daily living. Imagine practicing a rhythm of storytelling that can be easily modeled at church and at home — a simple, repetitive pattern that creates a natural flow of spiritual practice in daily living. In this workshop, participants are invited to experience familiar faith stories in a new way through rhythms of storytelling that echo the rhythms of worship: gather, (share) story, wonder, play, bless.
