Epic Telling

The Festival Gathering reaches its apex in the performance of the "Epic Telling". The selected portions of scripture will be told by a series of tellers - in a spirited rendering of the scripture.

The Epic Telling for 2019 is the Gospel of Jesus Christ according to St. John, chapters 1-7.  Tellers will learn their portion of the text well ahead of the Festival Gathering using the New Revised Standard Version of the Gospel and exchanging "the Jews" with "Religious leaders, religious elite and/or Judeans" as appropriate. A rehearsal for the Epic usually takes place on the Friday evening before supper.  Contact nbscanada@outlook.com if you have questions.
