telling a different story


frorm a friend... it is too good not to post here

 CHANGE + SOCIETY + STORY


This past Sunday afternoon I had a brilliant phone conversation with my friend Thomas Knoll and he reminded me of this beautiful quote from Ivan Illich. For those of us trying to improvise between tradition and culture, this can serve as a call to re-focus on what really matters — this is especially true for those of us in mainline Protestant denominations.
How do we practice the art of storytelling in the midst of crisis?
How do we practice the art of storytelling in the midst of disagreements?
How do we practice the art of storytelling in the midst of discontinuous change?
How do we practice the art of storytelling in the midst of learning a new cultural language?
How do we practice the art of storytelling in the midst of building up the community?
