“Story Companions” Adult Education Series
“Story Companions: Caring and Creating Community through Story Sharing” is a special series consisting of three Zoom sessions on August 15, 22, and 29 at 9 am, followed by an in-person retreat at APC on Saturday, September 18, 9am-12:30 pm.  For full details, please view the Class Description. 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 will be led by Dr. Karen Scheib, Emerita Professor of Pastoral Care and Pastoral Theology at Emory University’s Candler School of Theology and author of Pastoral Care: Telling the Stories of Our Lives.  Click here to register for the series.
