Special Series

“Story Companions: Caring and Creating Community through Story Sharing”

Story care fosters compassion and forms community. Through reverent listening to each other in suffering, joy, and the rhythms of daily life we can discern the presence of God. In so doing, we become story companions who see and name the intersections of God’s story, the stories of others, and our story. In this series, we will practice being story companions who grow in grace by paying attention to the particular story God is weaving in our community.  This series is led by Dr. Karen Scheib, Emerita Professor of Pastoral Care and Pastoral Theology at Emory University’s Candler School of Theology.

“Story Companions” was shared during three meetings in August and will conclude with an in-person retreat at APC on Saturday, September 18, 9:00 am – 1:30 pm in Fellowship Hall.  For full details, please view the Class Description.

Register for the course and the retreat via Realm.
