A story communicates fear, hope, anxiety, and because we can feel it, we get the moral not just as a concept, but as a teaching of our hearts. That’s the power of story.
—Marshall Ganz, “Why Stories Matter,” Sojourners Magazine, March 2009.
As we seek to live gratefully, simply, justly, and generously, we find that the stories of others doing the same challenge and inspire us. Here we have begun to archive such personal narratives through our digital storytelling project, generously funded by the Episcopal City Mission. If you have a story you’d like to share please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
