Prime Timers, as we enjoy the beauty of new life during this season of Lent, let’s all come together for a morning of laughter and inspiration. We are so happy to have Sally Riffey, our own professional Storyteller, present “Sarah, Mother to the Thief on the Cross."
Sally is a native of Oklahoma City and feels that her roots go deep into Oklahoma’s red clay. As a Storyteller, Sally enjoys telling folktales, original stories and “stories of the season” with a deep passion for Biblical stories. She has been a participant in the annual Easter Drama, “The Great Plains Passion Play.” Sally is a member of Territory Tellers which is Oklahoma’s premier storytelling organization.
Sally does Biblical portrayals of women of the Bible, including Mary Magdalene and Mary the Mother of Jesus, in Biblical costume as a solo drama presentation. The highlight of Sally’s storytelling career was the opportunity to tell Biblical stories at several sites in Israel, especially in Jerusalem and at the Sea of Galilee. Sally has also portrayed Mary the Mother of Jesus during Church of the Servant’s “Walk Through Bethlehem” since its inception.
Sally has taken her stories behind prison walls to our state and federal prisons. She has been a featured teller at “Tellabration” and Oklahoma Olio. She has also told stories at “WinterTales”, the Oklahoma City Arts Festival, and for the opening of the Oklahoma Trails at the Oklahoma City Zoo. She frequently tells stories for civic organizations, women’s ministry groups, churches, schools, professional business groups, as well as Easter and Christmas presentations and programs.
