Earlier this year…

Storytelling as Spiritual Practice goes to Tacoma

Thursday, November 6, 2014 | 7:00 – 9:00 PM | St. Leo’s Parish, Tacoma

Tad Monroe, Facilitator

This evening was so well received in Seattle that we are offering it again in Tacoma.  Read the description below and visit our Facebook page to RSVP!

“Expecting the Unexpected”

Discernment happens amidst the dance of many stories: the story of scripture, the story of the church, and our own personal stories. Discernment happens first by examining and understanding where we and others have been and allowing that wisdom to inform where we are going.  Join us as we explore the art and practice of storytelling. We will talk about how and why story works and why it is such an important spiritual practice – particularly in the context of Ignatian spirituality.

Come to the evening having jotted down or at least thought about one experience where your expectation was met with the unexpected.
