The Story Circle
A pebble breaks the surface of water in concentric circles. Each little wave connects the water as it travels. This demonstrates that the water’s surface is shifting and changing but always one entity.
Bodies of water are very much like communities. Just as many molecules of water make up a pond, or lake, or ocean, many people make up a town, a city, or a country. And a story, like a pebble, ripples through a community, moving us as it moves through us, informing us of our place in time and space, giving a tug on the bonds that hold us together in our humanity, reminding us of our interconnectedness.
The Story Circle is a place to toss a pebble out into the community, and let your story have its effect on others. It is a place to share the nourishment we need for our spirits and minds to flourish and grow.
Join us for storytelling.

Stories to Share
Stories are a special sort of nourishment. When you feed others stories, the stories feed you. When you share a story, listeners benefit from the experience. And that comes back to you.
