New Section on Site: Scripture by Heart Churches
New on our site is a special section for "Scripture by Heart churches": churches where the scriptures are told by heart in worship. The call to create Scripture by Heart groups in local churches was delivered by Tom Boomershine at the 2007 Festival Gathering of the Network of Biblical Storytellers (read about that in an interview with Tom for The Biblical Storyteller).
We've started the section with two churches which are each planning group tellings during Holy Week. Stone Presbyterian Church in Clinton, New York will be telling stories from the Gospel of Matthew. Grace United Methodist Church of Dayton, Ohio will be performing the Passion and Death narrative from Mark on Maundy Thursday.
An Interview with Tom Boomershine
The Biblical Storyteller, edited by Donna Marie Todd for the Network of Biblical Storytellers, International, interviewed Tom about his experience with biblical storytelling for its Spring 2009 issue.
The Biblical Storyteller is the official magazine of the Network and is a membership benefit. GoTell works closely with the Network and strongly advocates membership as well as attendance at the annual NBS Festival Gathering, held the first week in August. Tom is the co-founder of NBS.
