What will a pastor learn from this event?
How to tell your story and how to lead storytelling events in your community. Telling stories in public builds relationships.
We have done 3 public storytelling events over the last year. One of our Humble Walk parishioners left last spring to go off to seminary in South Carolina. Last night, he led an event in the bar--Beer and Hymns. It was a first for that community and that bar. It's a fairly conservative area--and was such a big deal they made it on the news. And they packed the room with 110 people. At the end of the event, he invited everyone back in two weeks for Beer and Stories--modeled after what we do at Humble Walk.
Wheeee!! It's so fun to see this get out of control.
