The past two years have been very, very difficult. In fact, I would go so far as to say that many, if not most of us, have experience trauma from the pandemic, from the divisiveness of elections and politics, and from the revelations and challenges to our sense of identity that come from the important Black Lives Matter movement and other social justice protests. We’ve been through a lot, and it isn’t over.
Even in the middle of struggle we can find hope by sharing our stories. Stories of suffering, stories of struggle, and stories of resiliency all help us find hope. The very act of sharing our stories gives us hope.
On Wednesday evening, September 29th, at 7:00 PM, we will have a story sharing event at St. Dunstan’s Church and online titled, Pandemic: Stories of Hope. Pastor Rick Reynolds, Executive Director of Nightwatch, will share his personal story of COVID-19 and the stories he has witnessed on the streets through his work. Rick’s story is powerful and compelling, and in it, we will seek signs of hope. Come to be encouraged, come to share your own story, and come to share in hope.
