Luke tells the story of the Messiah, son of Mary. The story is warmly Jewish, not surprising since Jewish lineage is traced by the mother’s line, and Mary is warmly Jewish, a kinswoman to her auntie, Elizabeth, who is married to a priest.
This is the story of the family that waited for the world to be turned right-side-up. This is also the story of an experimental community, Jews and Gentiles together, that was shaken to its roots by Roman brutality.
The story is haunted by memories of the Temple, memories of the hopes that attended the birth of Messiah, memories of the community that lost its Jewish centre of gravity when Romekilled perhaps a million of Jesus’ family members.
In this 4-session workshop, we will explore the gospel of Luke, a story that remembers what “we had hoped” (Lk 24:21) would finally happen.
Pam Faro, a professional storyteller who has performed and taught around the globe, will tell key parts of Luke’s story, and Richard Swanson, the director of the Provoking the Gospel Storytelling Project, will guide our exploration of Pam’s performances.
4 Tuesdays – Oct. 19 & 26, Nov. 2 & 9, 2021.
