"Young and old love stories. Literate and illiterate alike, tell and listen to stories. Neither stupidity nor sophistication puts us outside the magnetic field of story.
Story doesn't just tell us something and leave it there; story invites our participation. We feel the emotions, get caught up in the drama, identify with the characters, see into nooks and crannies of life that we had overlooked and realize there is more to being human that we have not yet explored."
Eugene Peterson

During this week's Gathering, we heard personal stories from a number of different Storyliner’s.
