Starting on February 28th, Monmouth Reform Temple will resume its Sunday discussion group series focused on personal storytelling. This was originally scheduled to begin in January but winter storm Jonas had other ideas. Participants will have an opportunity to share stories around a theme that will vary each month. You can share a personal story, or a story about someone you know, or even a story you have read about that has special significance to you. Our five story telling themes will be:

• Origins - February 28th
• Love and Marriage- March 20th
• Interfaith - April 17th
• Children - May 15th
• Miracles - June 26th

A sixth session on Death and Dying may also be scheduled depending on interest.

The first group’s theme will be Origins. Origin stories are perhaps the easiest stories to tell. Their beginning is your beginning and the end is where you are now. What was your earliest memory and your favorite one? What was your childhood like, your parents, your siblings and childhood friends? Who has been the biggest influence on your life? What lessons did that person teach you? Where did you grow up and how did the place where you lived influence you? What were your earliest experiences with religion? Did you have a moment where you found God or one when you felt the whole thing was a sham?

Come to share or come to listen. Either way, an interesting time is in for all.

This event is free and open to the public.
