Chapel Gathering in the Seminary: Shenandoah Valley Biblical Storytellers

& Chapel Gathering in the Seminary, Seminary.

Join with the Shenandoah Valley Biblical Storytellers as the recite sections of the Christmas story from scripture, interspersed with music.  From their website:

“We are a group of biblical storytellers from varied Christian traditions who have banded together to use our gifts to share the Bible in a way that many have not heard before.  Begun in 2009, we have visited churches, retirement facilities, nursing homes, civic auditoriums and many other venues brnging back the original way the Gospel was shared–orally from memory.  In addition to various telling and presentations, we meet about ten times a year at Muhlenberg Lutheran Church, Harrisonburg.  If you would like more information, like to arrange for a ‘telling’, or would like to join our group, we can be reached at svbsguild@gmail.com.”
