Stories that Compost

we're looking to track the 30 or so who participated in the workshop (as well as those who are continuing to re-imagine, re-articulate the beautiful bible stories in which we find ourselves).

stories that compost wkshp @ the east coast gathering...

russell and i would like to thank everyone who participated in the inaugural Stories that Compost: Cultivating a Sustainable Faith workshop. we were thrilled (even a little intimidated) to see so many show up. your interest and engagement were energizing; the stories you shared were amazing! now that you've started, we pray you won't stop re-imagining, re-articulating these stories of faith we all treasure.

i have 3 favors to ask of you:
  1. i lacked the foresight to prepare a sign in or feedback sheet so i could follow up with you as The Stories in Which We Find Ourselves bible story project develops. would you PLEEEEEEEEEASE join the STC group, message or befriend me with a note that says you participated? if you know the names of others who participated, drop those as well. (i still have a couple recordings i don't know to whom to attribute.)
  2. if you wrote something but didn't get a chance to record it, please email it to me (any feedback you have on the workshop itself would be useful too). i'd love to share it; the conversation needs your specific contribution.
  3. visit findourselves.kidcultivators.org periodically and continue to share/comment. what i neglected to share in the workshop is my hope that these stories will resource Kid Cultivators future work helping former child sex slaves find themselves again. although we all intuitively know the need for a 'post-ism' articulation of the biblical narrative, it helps if i can prove a real market for it. your activity on the blog does that. I'VE ALREADY POSTED ALL THE STORIES COLLECTED FROM THE WORKSHOP!
all the best to each of you. if russell and i can be of any assistance with attempts to live into the stories back in your communities, let us know.
much love,
melvin

You and Russell did a fantastic job. I was telling my bride, Ann, about how you drew out amazing Exodus stories from the group. Very moving, very hopeful, very prophetic, full of grace. Thanks!

Thanks again for the inspiration guys. I got to share my re-articulated story, Immigration, Power, and the All Consuming Fire, with our community on Sunday night. Awesome! can't wait to see where this story goes.

Please overlook my obsessiive compulsive proclivities but.... my notes from the STC workshop were lost somewhere in an airport between BWI and Orlando... if you see them being devoured by some misguided politician or chanting radical please return them to me! (Maintaining a position of peace at all times). Until then could someone complete the acronym C.O.M.P.O.S.T. for me? I will stand indebted to your gracious benevolence for at least .... well thanks at least!
