Theater Workshop

Physical Presence Workshop: Join the church body in using very simple theater and movement exercises to explore what it means to be present with each other, and to engage with Scripture in a way we often don't. Using the story of the woman who touched Jesus' cloak in the gospel of Luke, chapter 8, we will work as a group to discuss and explore the connection between soul and body. No previous theater experience necessary, but come ready to move! June 2, 1pm-3pm in Somerville. Contact Ruthie Buescher for more info and to sign up.
