Telling our own stories can feel a little more manageable when we do it a verse at a time. Grab your favorite pen and join Intern Pastor Amy Mihelich Smith as we immerse ourselves in the poetry of our past, present, and future. We’ll read great poetry from the Bible and from contemporary authors. Inspired by prompts and guided meditations, we’ll write our own poems together. We’ll reflect on the transformative power of storytelling, practice sharing poetry with others, and discover how our verses contribute to the larger epic of God’s work in the world.

What are the stories that shape who your family is? Interactive conversations will give your family time to discuss what makes your family’s experience its own, including birth stories, how your names were given and what they mean, and the daily routines and practices that are important to you – and what those quirky things you do as a family might say about you! You’ll also explore how your family has experienced God, faith, and community and how you can share your family’s faith story with others.
