The historic practice of biblical storytelling Is enjoying a revival thanks, in part, to the decades-long ministry of pastor and master storyteller, Tom Boomershine. Through this website, Boomershine and colleagues provide practical tools for biblical storytelling. The primary resource is an archive of commentary and actual stories, both written and audio, on every gospel reading of the Revised Common Lectionary. These can be searched by text, story name (such as “Woman at the Well”) and by year and Sunday of the lectionary cycle. There are articles and video workshops on how to become a storyteller. Leaders who want to engage the whole congregation will find ready-to-use notes for an intergenerational workshop entitled, “Empowering Congregations as Storytelling Communities.” GoTell is a go-to site for Christian educators, worship leaders, pastors and laity. All of its web-based resources are free.
