In partnership with SCRAPCE
As teachers, Christian educators, and pastors, we are called to tell stories, to listen to stories, and to remember stories. We are called to invite people out of their hurried lives into an intentionally reflective space where they can hear God's story. Today, quick-fixes are offered in many forms, but rarely do they satisfy. The unhurried process of storytelling and story listening invites us into a sacred cadence, a rhythm that can reform our hearts, and even rewire our brains. Science and faith agree: Story is central. We tell stories in order to live, as Joan Didion says.
