This week in our module Story, Song and Social Networks: Bible Engagement and Oral Culture students had to report on websites and ministries that deal with issues of orality and Bible Engagement. I asked them to explore the websites and consider three questions:
1. How do they define or assume orality in relation to the people they work with?
2. What kinds of projects interest you?
3. How do you think the projects might be contextualised to a different context you are interested in?
Lots of great discussion!
We used the list of sites available on the Bible and Orality resources page. Currently the list is as follows:
Chronological Bible Storying
Communication Across Barriers
Faith Comes By Hearing
Global Recordings Network
International Orality Network
The Java Club
Scriptures in Use
Simply The Story
T4 Global Blog
Wycliffe Bible Translators (UK)
Are there any sites we’ve missed? Leave a comment to suggest ones you think we should be including.
And if you want to reflect on issues of Bible and orality in more depth, you can always come to Redcliffe on either the BA(Hons) in Applied Theology in Intercultural Contexts, or even the MA in Bible and Mission!
