Inspirational, insightful and thought provoking

It is our responsibility to pass the stories on to the next generation

The LifeCall: Telling Our Story event was held on 6th October with Bob Hartman, renowned storyteller and author of numerous children’s books including The Lion Storyteller Bible leading a storytelling event at All Souls Springwood.

Over 100 people experienced his unique style of storytelling by both participating in the stories and hearing how we can use storytelling to tell the gospel to children, young people and adults.

Feedback received from those who attended included:
“Really inspirational sessions, enabling me to consider the importance of storytelling not only to the young.”

“I Learnt loads of stuff, no.1 is to have fun, enjoy the story and this will help everyone to enjoy it too.”
“Perhaps we don't have to be so stuffy, we are allowed to laugh and be silly if this involves people and gets the message across!”

“That as adults we have forgotten the real importance of play, and simply doing things with a big smile!“

“Technology is fine but actually building relationships with people through the use of stories is the key, we need to do more storytelling in our churches!”

The evening was a great success, with a clear underlying message that as it tells us in scripture “It is our responsibility to pass the stories on to the next generation“. Bob Hartman helped us to do that!
