Webteam: January 2018
A wonderful entertaining evening was a good start to the "knitted bible"event at Emmanuel. The 33 bible scenes around the room gave plenty of food for thought and are well worth a visit.
The evening opened with the Circuit choir "Joyful noise"(;not news) telling us how the stories from the Bible brought music to the air before Bob Hartman launched into his non stop story telling marathon.
Anyone who expected to sit back and listen to a story would have been disappointed as Bob encouraged us to join him as chickens, elephants, flowers and trees while seeking "volunteers"to portray Adam and Eve and the twinkling stars. The highlight of the evening, for me, however was his telling of the wise and foolish men building their houses. While Alec Olsen perfected his constipated rock impression, Cameron 'shifty' Stirk did his best impression of shifting sand while both were soaked by raining Rochnia.
Repetition, rhyme and interaction made sure that no two stories were the same making this a lively evening for all ages.
