July = Story
We have come to the end of the month of July, as well as our current focus on stories.
However, I will continue through this blog to tell stories, and to reflect upon stories, although with a slightly different focus. Tomorrow, I will announce the topic for August.
As we move forward, I encourage you to continue to use your journals to listen and record the stories around you, especially the stories in your heart. The heart is one place in which creativity, spirituality and service as response come together. From this particular heart meeting, story always emerges.
Some prompts for further reflection on the topic of stories:
Are you a story-teller, or a story-listener? Which do you choose? And, when?
What are your favorite stories?
What means of expression, or combinations of expression, best tell your own unique story:
- words as verbal expression
- words as written expression
- creative arts
- being a care-giver
- being the “bread winner”
How does your story connect with other stories, both past and present?
Where is the Holy One in your story?
