Mark Alive!

      No one knows how Mark’s gospel came into being. No one knows how it
was transmitted from place to place. Its creator remains utterly unknown to
us, even in the unlikely event that his name was Mark. Most scholars believe
that this gospel was the earliest – and least adulterated of the New
Testament gospels to appear. It is also the shortest.
      Dorothy Soelle, author of Theology for Skeptics, Against the Wind, and
Beyond Mere Obedience observed, theology that is truly alive never arises
apart from its situation. It does not drop from heaven as ‘God’s Word,’ but
rather constitutes itself in the mixture of trust and fear, hope and doubt of life’s
intensity. A conversation about faith comes into being when people share
their hunger for spirit in leaden or desperate times. “The satiated have no
need to talk to each other.”

       Today, we know Mark’s gospel as a written narrative, and we always hear
it in short bursts. But in the classical oral tradition, storytellers were illiterate;
they learned their stories – many of them extremely long – by listening to
other storytellers. The stories were never repeated verbatim but always tuned
to the moment, to that day’s particular performance. Stories came alive in the
space between the storytellers’ performances and the audience’s hearing.

 On Sunday, June 21 we invite you, your friends and
loved ones to experience The Gospel According To Mark
first-hand in its entirety as recited by an ensemble of nine
storytellers. At 10:30 in the morning, we hope you will join
us for the singular and unforgettable experience of hearing
Mark Alive! You will never think of the Gospel narrative the
same way again.
