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).

“The Bible, The Christian Faith, and Stories” presented by the Rev. Jeff Packard
In this session we will explore how the Christian faith is shaped by stories. Beginning with the parable of the
Good Samaritan, and looking at other stories Jesus told. We will look at the ancient stories of the Hebrew
Scriptures and begin to discuss how we understand our own life story in the context of the stories of our faith.
