Goals, Workshop 10: Photos And Stories: Representing Ourselves

In "Families," a Tapestry of Faith program

Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.

- Dr. Seuss

Participants will:

  • Value each individual's perspective as an interpreter of our world and as a teller of our stories
  • Build and foster the ability to understand multiple perspectives
  • Develop the ethics of care and responsibility through the intimate and ethical process of representing others
  • Engage in the shared ministry of focusing—literally and figuratively—on the faces and narratives of congregation members
  • Grow and deepen their naturally compassionate souls
  • Engage joyfully in the creation of art
  • Learn more fully that there is no "objective" point of view
  • Learn how the fundamentals of photography translate to our way of living and interpreting the world more generally
  • Engage as leaders of a project that serves the greater congregation and affirms more deeply their place in interdependent, multigenerational, congregational life
  • Collaborate with peers
  • Experience the roles of photographer/artist and storyteller—visual and/or text—within a faith community
