We gathered yesterday, Sunday April 28, 2013 for our second Easter storytelling session. Stories for the Journey: An Easter Celebration began with Jeremy Marks, “Keeping my head above water.”

Julie Booth ended our eight-part series telling her story, “That’s the way the cookie crumbles”. Here is JB’s story.

I am delighted that our stories are creating such a wonderful, beautiful response in our community, such an Easter blessing and gift. Thank you, Tom for initiating this idea in our parish community. I hope we can continue this storytelling search for hope in our community well beyond this Lenten/Easter series.

These two stories from April 28 are based on the gospel from the Fifth Sunday of Easter, John 13:31-33a, 34-35. The photo: JB, Ron, Jeremy and Tom taken during the Lenten session.
