SACRED SAINTS STORIES
MonasticBeehiveCell.jpg
Cold, stone monastic beehive cells for solitude and prayer. Simple meals of fruits and vegetables harvested by hand. Gratitude during daily chores to the One Above All who supplied every need. These shared elements of the ancient saints created lives of devotion, service, and prayer. Bobbie offers these timeless truths filled with mystical and remarkable experiences in a dramatic 20-minute delivery, suitable for any worship services.

SACRED MUSIC

ORIGINAL MONOLOGUES

Longer programs (45-50 minutes) are also available, comprised of two saint tales, music, and traditions from Celtic Spirituality. The inspirational performances may used near the saint’s feast day or any time during the year.

“Bobbie Pell is a gifted performer and storyteller who, in her presentation of Saint Mary Magdalene at our church, moved Mary off the flat page of ancient scripture, breathing her to life with passion, complexity, intrigue, and faith. Bobbie’s embodiment of Mary Magdalene was stirring and lit up our congregation with laughter, delight, and new awareness of this inspiring first 'Apostle to the Apostles.' Story is our greatest medium for teaching and transformation, and Bobbie is a master at bringing story to life.”
Reverend David McNair, Episcopal Church of the Holy Spirit

“As Bobbie’s story of Saint Mary Magdalene unfolds, we are intimately connected with the wisdom teachings of our Master Jesus. Bobbie was authentic, bold, humble, and powerful. It appeared that the Spirit of Mary Magdalene was speaking directly through this storyteller.”
Ginny Lentz, Sacred Feminine Service Coordinator
