Narrative as Sacred Text: Reflection, Reframing, and Reauthoring for Self-Authorship and Building Community with Reverend Terri Ofori

We all have a story. Some might say, “I don’t have a story” or “a story worth telling,” but you do and the world is in need of hearing it. You must claim authorship of your own story and learn to tell it to others so they might understand you, be inspired by you and discover what calls you to be who you are in the world.

Objectives:

  • Help participants understand the connection between their personal narrative and how it can help with the process of vocational discernment and discovering your purpose.
  • Help participants critically reflect on the importance of owning their story and examine the intersections of their identity and the complex themes of their personal narrative
  • Help participants learn how to use their personal narrative to navigate the educational landscape and engage the Ursinus Quest (what should matter to me, how should we live together? How can we understand the world? What will I do?).
