Explore the Power of Storytelling
February 27 – 28 via Zoom
Explore the power of storytelling to heal, unpack our identities, nurture our faith and so much more with Brothers Luke Ditewig and Lucas Hall of the Society of St. John the Evangelist (SSJE). We will have the opportunity to imaginatively immerse ourselves in the stories of scripture, in the story of this monastic order, our story as a community celebrating its
300th anniversary, and our individual stories with sessions on Saturday morning and afternoon. Weekend is free with donations gladly accepted. This weekend is open to all hearing and ASL community.
The weekend will include a panel discussion on Sunday afternoon. Led by our Rector Joe, local historian John Hennessy, author and St. Georgian Malanna Henderson, Rev. Oshin Jennings of No Barriers Zen, and SSJE Brother Luke will examine St. George’s story in the context of our community, both historically, currently, and with an eye towards the future.
