Stirring Our Story....

January 13, 2017

 

Do you have a story that you love? Is there a story that you feel might invoke the energy of something you or your family want to work on this year? What is stirring in you? What is stirring in our community?

 

This Sunday, January 15 at our monthly Witchlet’s meeting, we are working with this year’s Camp Story. Folks can bring any ideas or thoughts of either a specific story they want to propose, or even just ideas of types of stories that they want to bring forward. In our last meeting we invoked Story and came up with a list of different qualities and thoughts that we as a community might be looking for in a story to work this year. Here are is a list of those:::
