Learn story telling
at Sundays at Two

Arnold, a retired Presbyterian minister, was dean of faculty at Union Theological Seminary in Richmond from 1983 to 1990, where he was a professor of pastoral counseling from 1976 to 1999, reported committee member Jackie Ferriter. He graduated from Southern Baptist Theological Seminary with a doctorate in the psychology of religion and pastoral counseling in 1970.

After attending a program where stories were told by an unusually intriguing storyteller, he decided to learn more about different traditions by attending workshops in places associated with particular kinds of storytelling, such as Irish stories in Ireland and Native American stories in the Southwest, said Ferriter. He describes this approach as a  “somewhat nomadic” path to becoming a storyteller.

Arnold began telling stories to appreciative audiences in 1987, she said. He specializes in sacred tales from a variety of religious traditions, as well as in humorous and cultural tales of the South.

Following the talk, there will be an opportunity for questions, along with refreshments.
