The sharing of human experience has the potential to function
as an anchor in a dysfunctional world tossed about by change and at
a time when humankind is confronted with a pluralism of values,
spiritualities, and political realities. Yet how often does the person
sitting in the pew on Sunday morning feel that his/her story has
little or no meaning, and so the story is never heard.
It is my pastoral concern that the stories of many people are
not being told, or if told, are not being affirmed because the
storytellers do not know how to use the "tools" at their disposal to
fashion these stories into stories of faith.
