Bringing the Word to Life: A Workshop for Lectors and Other Proclaimers
March 5, 2011
Presenter: Douglas Leal, Coordinator of Young Adult Ministry, Archdiocese of Los Angeles Office of Religious Education, and author of Stop Reading and Start Proclaiming!
Reading Scripture aloud is more than merely reading the words well; rather, we are called to proclaim fully all of the life within those words. This workshop introduces practical techniques, borrowed from the time-tested work of professional actors, to turn reading into vibrant proclamation—but not performance. In addition, techniques are offered for making supportive critiques to hone others’ skills. This video records the workshop presented in 2010.
