It is a privilege, a responsibility, a concern.
We steward the stories of the people around us, caretakers of God’s woven threads throughout their lives. We ask people to pray, share stories of celebration and victory, tragedy and loss.
Our position is so unique as we straddle two worlds, bridging the gap between them. This isn’t easy sometimes, and we struggle with what to share on social media or in newsletters, how to bring attention to needs while maintaining the dignity of all.
How do you tell these stories?
This week we are talking about ethical storytelling, diving into the ways that we tell the stories of the people around us. How have you wrestled with these concepts? We would love to hear from you this week.
