Stories have power. They delight, enchant, touch, teach, recall, inspire, motivate, challenge. They help us understand. They imprint a picture on our minds. Want to make a point or raise an issue? Tell a story. -- Janet Litherland
After nourishment, shelter and companionship, stories are the thing we need most in the world.
-- Philip Pullman
Every great love starts with a great story... -- Nicholas Sparks, The Notebook
The purpose of a storyteller is not to tell you how to think, but to give you questions to think upon.
-- Brandon Sanderson, The Way of Kings
What story do you have to share?
What memorable experience has changed your life? Storytelling evokes passion, emotions, understanding and compassion. Storytelling can unite even those of us who are most divided by our values, beliefs and principles.
Each of us takes something different from the stories we hear. Every person who hears a story feels connected to the people, places and events in the stories being told. And every one of us longs to be part of the stories we hear.
This Friday evening, you have the chance to be moved by storytelling. You have the chance to hear stories from your neighbors and friends. You have the opportunity to share your own story that is living inside of you.
