We’ve decided we need a space for stories here at Agape North, a collective space for all who make our work possible to come together and simply swap stories. Human beings are meant for stories: reading stories, telling stories, getting lost in a story, and most of all, creating our own individual and community story.
Last night I carved out an entire evening to go spend time with a friend of mine who is a master storyteller, he remembers every good and wild story and every time we’re together, he retells them. I like being around him because he recalls stories and laughs a lot, that’s what he offers and people love him. Something within us craves a good story, and perhaps that’s a snapshot of our lives as a whole. We all enjoy a good story because at the end of the day, the overarching theme of our lives is to find a good story and jump in.
The first step to having a decent life is to make sure you’re living a good story (more on that in later posts, perhaps), but the next step is to invite others into good stories. Folks who do that very thing are folks we remember. Agape North exists to invite you into a good story, an often overlooked story right in the middle of your own city and community. We create a bridge between two communities and invite them to tell each other the story of their lives and community.
