The Power and Practice of Personal Storytelling: A Public Workshop in Seattle

Some people thing we’re made of flesh and blood and bones. Scientists say we’re made of atoms. But I think we’re made of stories. When we die, that’s what people remember, the stories of our lives and the stories that we told.–Ruth Stotter

Join the SPU School of Theology, Office of University Ministries, and Pivot NW in a morning training in personal storytelling with Mark Yaconelli.

This morning training will be an exploration of personal storytelling in ministry. Through presentation, contemplative exercises, theological reflection, and a variety of narrative practices, participants will encounter the power of personal storytelling for spiritual formation, outreach, social justice, and other ministries.
