Storying Together – Weekly Inspiring Image

Tongan

Participants at a Bible storytelling workshop on the island of ‘Eua, in the Kingdom of Tonga, gather together for prayer at the close of the day. Learning to craft and internalise stories from the Bible to share with their neighbours, many of the participants also found the Bible stories touching their hearts. Sinita, a church leader, says that when she first came to the workshop she thought that telling Bible stories was, “Sunday school stuff.” But she now realises that it is about interpreting and sharing the Bible in a meaningful way. As another participant reflects, “Jesus is asking us to do what he did: tell Bible stories!” View a photo-story from this storytelling workshop.
