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
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
“Telling Our Story through Improv” presented by Andrea McCloskey,
co-founder and company member of Happy Valley Improv
In this workshop we will use improv theater games and exercises to practice creating and embodying stories
with one another. We will practice the tenets of improv, including listening, accepting, and building off the
truths established by the collective. This will be low-pressure and accessible to all… there is no expectation to
have acting experience; no need to be funny or quick-witted! All that you need is a willingness to try something
new and have fun with others!
