Digital Storytelling and the Earth

During the 2023-2024 academic year I will be working with a series of churches and other organizations on a digital storytelling project. In that project a very divere set of churches in wildly different contexts will be supporting their participants in crafting personal stories of their relationship to Creation, particularly to the earth, to the land, to outdoor places that matter to them.

I am particularly interested in how our stories of the land, and our relationship to it, shape our engagement with issues of care for creation.

You can express interest in this project on the project website, and you can follow a news stream about it on my more general site.

The world always seems brighter when you’ve just made something that wasn’t there before.

Neil Gaiman

Paradoxically, great storytelling makes us better able not to mistake our compositions for reality, better able to inhabit the silent uncertain spaces between the low notes of knowledge and the shrill tones of opinion, better able to feel, which is always infinitely more difficult and infinitely more rewarding than to know.
