Recently, I had the honor of leading a Storyropes™ workshop with Trisha, the lead for The Creative Call, Washington. It was a group of six women, leaders in a church. I really appreciate caring for women in small settings, so I was happy for the intimacy of this gathering. I began our sharing by “reading” my collaged book of the woman who encountered Jesus at a well in Samaria. Then, I shared my story with my storyrope™.
After sharing, I invited the women to share their stories by using ribbons and fabric to “tell” their stories. It is a unique way to share without words – at least to begin our journeys of releasing our stories to God, and embracing them ourselves. (We often run from at least part of our stories.) We can put color to an event when we can’t find our words.
Our morning together was a time to bring healing and hope to our stories. The time of prayer for each woman was important soul work. For more information on story ropes™, check out my description at my website here: The Creative Call, Storyropes™
