Story Time

This week we spent a couple of mornings doing ‘Walk Thru the Bible’ (in double time, 3 hours for each Old and New Testaments instead of 6) and I have to say it has been fantastic. Our teacher was Paul Keeys, the director of Walk Thru the Bible (although I am sure the other presenters are also very good). It has got me thinking a bit, over the last couple of years in my last post I had started using story a bit more, perhaps because I started doing more primary aged assemblies again and unlike in the past most of them I did on my own. One of the things I really enjoyed was the fact that exploring the bible this way even in such a quick overview it helped you to not only see how things fitted together a bit more but also made things click that I had just not noticed before. I have to say it is a brilliant resource and one that I may well consider looking into training for in the future especially seeing the way it can be used with both school Children and in adult seminars. It could work as a brilliant introduction to a series on the Old or New Testament, could perhaps even work as a whole for a weekend away but it has also challenged me to think a bit more about the use of story in my ministry, we often think of story time as something for the children yet it was Jesus main teaching method, maybe we could all do with a bit more story in our lives?

    I agree, what a great session, and what a teacher! :o)

    Thanks Simon. I really enjoyed the “Sprint Thru the Bible”. Maybe one day soon you can come and join us teaching all over the UK?

    God bless
