How Stories Can Save Us

How Stories Can Save Us

Thursday, April 20, 2023 (7:00 PM - 8:30 PM) (MDT)


“Now more than ever, we need a book and a teacher such as this.”–Anne Lamott, New York Times bestselling author In an increasingly fast-paced and fractured world, sharing stories can be a radical and deeply human practice for uncovering the ties that bind us to one another. Story invites us to step into the reality of another person’s existence and instead of judgment feel kinship. In the pages of Between the Listening and the Telling, storyteller, author, and activist Mark Yaconelli leads readers into an enchanting meditation on the power of storytelling in our individual and collective lives. Through his work with The Hearth nonprofit, Yaconelli has served communities across the United States and United Kingdom to bridge divisions, heal trauma, shed light on injustice, and recover hope. In this inspiring and interactive presentation Mark Yaconelli will show how stories can heal our families, our world, ourselves. Join us at Trinity Lutheran Church, Nampa on Thursday, April 20 from 7-8:30pm for this free community event.
