A Full House for Change

Duane Whitcomb, Noah Yaconelli, and Joseph Yaconelli play "Tear Down the House" at the Hearth: Real Stories by Regular Folks

People sat in the aisles, stood along the walls, and crowded out into the overflow room for the Hearth’s fall storytelling event. The theme was Change: True Tales of Transformation.  We had stories of childhood grief, surviving sexual abuse, living through the Argentinian revolution, following in the footsteps of St. Frances, renouncing all possessions, and working oneself out of poverty.  The event raised over $600 and a new set of volunteers for the Maslow Project, a drop-in center for homeless youth in Southern Oregon.  Our next event will be January 19th, 2011. The theme is Winter Tales.  The Hearth will also be sponsoring a weekend retreat entitled “The Inside Story: A Retreat in Self Discovery,” February 10-12, 2012 (space is limited to 25).

Author and national parenting expert Jennifer Margulis has written a post (with photos!) about our last Hearth gathering here.
