Everyone is a storyteller.
Just ask professional storyteller Tracy Radosevic.
"Storytelling is using your voice and your body to express an event," said Radosevic, who taught a biblical storytelling workshop Saturday at Harlem United Methodist Church. "You can tell a parable from the Bible, or you can tell about something funny that happened to you at work yesterday. It's all storytelling."
The Baltimore native made a side trip to Harlem while visiting Atlanta as part of her storytelling ministry.
After the workshop, she gave a storytelling performance at the church that evening and took over the sermon duties at the Sunday morning and evening services as well.
"My Bible stories are about 70 percent scripture and the rest of the story comes from historical research and from my own point of view," said Radosevic, who belongs to an organization called the Network of Biblical Storytellers. "No two people tell the same story the same way. You always put a little part of yourself in each story. That's what makes each one unique."
