Full recording of the opening session: Telling our stories from everyday life.
In the Gospels we read of Jesus encountering adults and children in their everyday lives. He engages with their stories as the story of who he is unfolds among them. In this workshop we will explore how we share the small and big stories of our everyday lives, revealing Christ within them. Come with paper and pens and a desire to have a go. If you like emojis there will be an opportunity to use them … and if you don’t know what an emoji is, that’s OK! You have a story to tell.
