DSC_0233Storytelling Examples

I use story in many different ways…
  • worship
  • prayer
  • spiritual formation teaching
  • fellowship in a congregation
Almost every Sunday in the last fifteen years or so I have also told a story to children in worship that has themes connecting to the scripture for the day. (They come to the front of the sanctuary and sit on the floor with me.It is great fun!)

My experience is that this prepares them to better hear and learn scripture. And it can be sort of a warm up for adults- prep for listening to the sermon and its teachings.

Here are just a few examples:

The Crescent Moon Bear

Salmon of Wisdom

Children’s Storytelling: Speak Only Praise
