Each of us lives a life that tells a powerful story. Every one of us has a unique set of gifts, talents and perspectives that shape our story. Owning our stories and embracing the opportunity to learn through our relationships and life experiences to shape a story full of purpose and hope brings a richness into life. Our purpose grows through bringing capacity, purpose and hope into the stories of others and the stories of the groups and communities to which we belong.
Where we draw on deeply held values and the wisdom of generations, there is depth and a sustaining richness to our stories. Families play a very important role in providing a loving and secure place where the generational sharing of values and ways of being can be shared as individual and family stories are shaped together. All of us are part of God’s family. We can be safe and secure in His unconditional love and draw on His wisdom shared within the Bible. Empowered by His love and wisdom, we can be courageous and compassionate in the shaping of purposeful and hope-filled individual, family and community stories. As a community we can write powerfully together.
