Theme: “And who is my neighbor? Exploring storytelling in faith and morality”
Jesus summarized the Law: “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and
with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself.” Then to justify himself a man
asked, “And who is my neighbor?” Jesus’ answer was a story, the story of the Good Samaritan.
Stories are how we make sense of the world. We learn about our faith from stories. Much of the Old Testament
is narrative. Jesus told stories. The story of Jesus himself—his life, death, resurrection, and ascension—is at the
heart of the Christian faith.
Join us for this series which will explore how we use stories to engage and express our faith, how we tell our
own story within the framework of our faith, and how we can learn to listen to and support each other in this
process.
Presenters will approach the subject from the perspectives of the Bible, oral storytelling, poetry, and
improvisational theater. This will be an interactive program, so come and be ready to tell your story (and listen
to stories too).

6:45-8:00 Program
“The Neighbor Speaks: Poetry, Persona, and Point of View” presented by Marjorie Maddox,
professor of English and Creative Writing at the Lock Haven campus of Commonwealth University
In this generative poetry workshop, we’ll focus on point-of-view and the persona poem, including how such
literary techniques can shape our narratives and lead to a deeper understanding of “our neighbor.” No writing
experience necessary. Come ready to discuss, write, laugh, and learn. Join us!
