Storytelling in the time of Coronavirus…
I’ve been working up to re-starting my blog (it’s been so very long…life…), and especially so since we find ourselves in the strange reality of living ‘midst a serious pandemic – and so it turns out I’m resurrecting it as we draw near to Easter, to announce a special opportunity especially for those involved in Christian worship service planning:
Are you looking for an online worship resource for Good Friday or Holy Saturday?
How about streaming a recording of an oral telling of the Passion Story from the Gospel of Mark?
I have been telling the Passion Story from Mark for 20+ years, and have regularly been booked by churches for live performances during Lent and Holy Week – but we all know what has happened this year!
Times and finances are hard for so many of us during this coronavirus pandemic. I, along with incalculable others, have suddenly lost significant teaching and performance income due to the circumstances. And of course countless churches, and other organizations and individuals, are struggling financially as well as with how to carry on in our socially-distanced current reality.
So I’m making available this half-hour video recording of my studio-telling of the Passion Story from Mark. Instead of my setting a firm fee, for this Holy Week during the coronavirus pandemic this recording will be available to you for a “rental” period until the end of April for a dollar amount of your choosing.
Send a donation in any amount that is both respectful of my work and time, and reflective of your current situation – you’ll find the right balance that works for you – and you’ll receive the link to stream this Passion Story for your digital worship service(s).
But most importantly of all…
…be well and stay safe. Let’s all wash, wash, wash our hands, keep our healthful distance, wear masks when we go out; and find ways to support our medical professionals, grocery and supply chain workers, delivery people, the people who clean and keep the basic necessities running for us…and each other! Further reflections and stories in the time of coronavirus will be forthcoming…
Peace to you all,
