Conference Resources!

I had the great privilege of attending and providing leadership for two conferences over the last two weeks: the Festival Gathering of the Network of Biblical Storytellers and the Go Disciple Live conference on discipleship and evangelism. You can read more about my talk at the GDL conference here.

I used a few resources over those days, and as promised, I am sharing them here.

“To God, before whom I fall” was written and read by the amazing Sarah Agnew. You can find more of Sarah’s poetry and storytelling on her site Sarah Tells Stories. This poem was taken from the book On Wisdom’s Wings. Sarah is doing some incredible work in storytelling, and you should definitely check it out!

The following videos were created by the children of the church, and filmed and edited by our the fabulous Alex Bryant. (Forgive my branding at the top–they are his, but I had to reload the videos onto  my vimeo site to link them appropriately!)

SNEAK PREVIEW: Story Divine

Get ready for Story Divine–the latest ministry from Faith and Wonder! Though the official launch of the podcast and website are a few weeks away, I wanted to give you a sneak preview. Each week will feature a biblical story (taken from the upcoming lectionary* readings for the following Sunday), as well as some reflections and personal storytelling prompts.

The site is being tweaked, intro music is being created, and I am getting excited!

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls…

*Don’t know what the lectionary is? You’re not alone! Here is info from the Vanderbuilt Divinity Library site:

  • What is the Revised Common Lectionary?

    The Revised Common Lectionary is a three-year cycle of weekly lections used to varying degrees by the vast majority of mainline Protestant churches in Canada and the United States. The RCL is built around the seasons of the Church Year, and includes four lections for each Sunday, as well as additional readings for major feast days. During most of the year, the lections are: a reading from the Hebrew Bible, a Psalm, a reading from the Epistles, and a Gospel reading. During the season of Easter, the Hebrew Bible lection is usually replaced with one from the Acts of the Apostles. The lections from the Hebrew Bible are sometimes chosen from the Apocrypha.

    The seasons of the Church Year reflect the life of Christ. Consequently, the gospel lections for each Sunday provide the focus for that day. The other lections for a given day generally have a thematic relationship to the gospel reading for that day, although this is not always the case. In Ordinary Time, the Revised Common Lectionary offers two sets of readings for the lessons from the Hebrew Bible. One set proceeds semicontinuouly, giving the story of the Patriarchs and the Exodus in Year A, the monarchial narratives in Year B, and readings from the Prophets in Year C. In the other set of readings for Ordinary Time (shown in italics on this site) the readings from the Hebrew Bible are thematically related to the gospel lections. Denominations or local churches generally use either the semicontinuous readings or the thematic readings during Ordinary Time. They do not typically move back and forth between the two over the course of a single season.

    The gospel readings for each year come from one of the synoptic gospels according to the following pattern:

    • Year A – Matthew
    • Year B – Mark
    • Year C – Luke

    Readings from the Gospel of John can be found throughout the RCL.
