Biblical Storytelling 201 - Thoughts and Feelings
with Lori Ruge-Jones
In this workshop we'll explore some ways to get into the feelings in a sacred story, how to make choices about feelings, and how to express them within the script as we have it. We'll also learn how to do some background research to understand the story more deeply and how to incorporate it while maintaining the integrity of the narrative.
