Abstract: This study explores the linguistic ways an EFL pre-service teacher frames English language teaching (ELT) within the context of his religious (Christian) belief Such ways are encapsulated by the notion of Christian discoursing. Central to this notion is how Christian texts are interwoven with non-religious texts such as ELI practices. The importance of the discOllfsing transpires when the Christian texts are believed to have some transfonnative impacts on a teacher's ELT practices. From the three collected tellings of the teacher's same teaching experience over a period of less than three weeks, it becomes apparent that his Christian discoursing is similar across tellings in tenns of the underlying memory (i.e., "reliance upon God") and yet slightly or very different from one telling to another with regard to wording and phrasing of routine fonnulae, including collocations, and allusions.
