Moravian Theological Seminary to Present “Bibliodrama” and Other Programs

Bethlehem, Pa., April 5, 2005— Moravian Theological Seminary will hold a number of programs in the coming weeks. Dr. Bjorn Krondorfer will present a “Bibliodrama” workshop called “Putting on the Word” April 15 and 16 at the Bahnson Center. A Bibliodrama is “a playful, creative, and spiritual approach to biblical stories.” In addition to readings, students will partake in improvisations, mediations, scenic play, and group interactions. The sessions’ goal is for students to experience the Bible personally and spiritually. Krondorfer is an associate professor of religious studies at St. Mary’s College of Maryland. He conducts such workshops both nationally and internationally.

Moravian Theological Seminary will present a weekend workshop, April 8 and 9, titled “Transforming Marital Relationships.” The session will include both teachings from the Bible and new brain science discoveries. It is designed to be non-intrusive and give class members practical skills for better all-around relationships. The workshop will even discuss how one can fall in love with God. The instructor, Dr. Edward Santana-Grace, is founder and president of the Marriage and Family Education and Skills Training Institute. He is also currently a pastor at First Presbyterian Church of Hokendauqua in Whitehall, Pa.

Moravian Theological Seminary’s Lay Academy will hold one-day class titled “Art of a Spiritual Journey” from 9:30 am to 3:30 pm on Saturday, April 23. No talent is necessary, and materials are provided. Studio artist and art therapist Dorothy Heine Rudolph will teach the course.
