Around fifty people attended the highly memorable "Cook's Tour" of the Old Testament brought to us by the "Walk Through the Bible" team.
It's quite a triumph to condense a massive sweep of Biblical narrative into so few words. For example, summarising the first Kings as Saul (no heart), David (whole heart) and Solomon (half heart) helps to remind us of what sort of people they were in their relationship with God.
These pithy subtitles were accompanied by actions to remind us of what we had learned, and amusing cartoons, enhancing the multi- sensory all round learning experience.
The lie of the land and the historical background were brought imaginatively to life in ways that helped our understanding.
For many people this day will have filled gaps in knowledge, shed new light on the scriptures, and encouraged reading for oneself "the scriptures Jesus read."
