Old Stories New
Old Stories New is a podcast exploring life through the world of stories. We’ll start with podcast interviews, adding an episode every month.
In our first podcast series, entitled Widening the Canon: Reconciliation through Storytelling, we’ll examine how a growing revival of the oral culture of biblical storytelling and traditional Indigenous oral culture might collaborate to contribute to reconciliation as called for by Canada’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission. We’ll explore this potential through interviews with Indigenous persons and Christian settlers active with the Network of Biblical Storytellers, or who relate in significant ways to traditional Indigenous people, groups, and movements.
I’m a pastor with Grace Mennonite Church (Brandon, MB), in partnership with Mennonite Church Manitoba (regional), and Mennonite Church Canada (national). I’m also a biblical storyteller, credentialed with the Network of Biblical Storytellers, International.
