What stories do we tell about ourselves—about who we are and what we’ve experienced, about what it all means and how our story, up to this point, can guide us? Have we chosen the stories we tell about ourselves, or are we defined by some limiting story that someone else tells about us? Who directs the plot twists, and how do they change our story?

This Sunday, Director of Faith Formation jo mosher offers a story that proves, once again, the power of storytelling itself. Worship Associate Mary Martin asks, “Am I writing my story, or is it happening to me?” Rev. Nancy revisits the very first sermon she preached for FUCSJ, on April 17, 2005, when she described her story as a mythic search for a common language. How has her story changed in the last 16 years? Would she tell it the same way now?

And what about your story? What story do you want to tell about yourself?

The music includes India.Arie’s “I Am Light” and a new arrangement of the hymn “My Life Flows on in Endless Song (How Can I Keep from Singing?).” Please join us!
