Orality - Changing the Face of Missions
"When ordinary people, any place in the world, come to understand some basic Kingdom principles about sharing the life and teachings of Jesus, it can be transformational, even revolutionary. Orality methods and strategies really do level the playing field so that everyone can participate. It never ceases to amaze us when we return to places where we’ve conducted orality training workshops and hear the amazing stories of how the Lord is working. People of all ages, educational levels and socioeconomic and ethnic backgrounds are learning and retelling the stories of Jesus and spreading the Good News." Jerry Wiles
Jerry Wiles, President Emeritus of Living Water International, is writing a series of articles for ANS (Assist News Stories) on the use of Bible Storying (Orality) as a means of sharing the gospel, teaching bible truths, and developing relationships with others, particularly with non-readers.
