Using the remembered Bible for building community

Janet Lees

Presents a method of using remembered (oral, not written) versions of the Bible with people of all ages and abilities. It describes remembered Bible study sessions that the author has conducted and gives examples of the liturgy, stories and prayers that have grown out of them.

In her 'remembered Bible' work, Janet Lees is practising a ‘world-shaking’ rather than a ‘world-maintaining’ pedagogy. It aims to disrupt deathly habits and patterns with new, life-giving ones, and in embracing a contextual theology it opens us up to recognising the God we meet every day.

Tell Me the Stories of Jesus transspaser

Tell Me the Stories of Jesus

A companion to the remembered gospel

Janet Lees

Many people are familiar with the gospel in written form but not everyone uses written versions of the gospel all of the time. We often use oral or remembered versions. This book is about the why, how, when, where and what of remembering the gospel.

Tell Me the Stories of Jesus is based on work done with many groups of different sizes and ages and cultures. The examples are set out to encourage other groups to ‘just go for it’: remember and by remembering share life and build community. Includes more than fifty starters for RB (remembered Bible) sessions and examples of prayers and reflections that have grown out of RB.
