Using songs, poems, stories from life, passages from Scripture and our Church’s liturgy, participants will explore the stories and events that have shaped us and our call to be story-tellers, people of faith, and rooted in kindness. With accompaniment from Fr. Vincent Sherlock, author of The Enchanted Way and Let Advent be Advent, these days will be relaxed and flexible, allowing time for input, reflection and sharing. Nothing will be written in stone.
