Story of God Training
Soma Communities uses an approach to teaching biblical narratives and discussing them called Chronological Bible Storying. It is often just called “Storying”. We have adapted and developed our stories and the corresponding dialogue to be effective in a current, and often western, context.
We use the attached document in training sessions for folks who have experienced the Story and are learning to lead it. Primarily, it provides biblical and cultural rationale for Storying and a framework of best practices for using the Story in making disciples. Experiencing the Story of God as a participant really is essential to learning to lead the Story, yet that may not always be feasible--we've kept that in mind as we designed this training document.
