Diana writes..."We are meaning-making creatures who spend much of our lives creating and telling stories, whether we're aware of it or not. Columbus Day or Indigenous People’s Day can get us thinking about our histories and the stories we choose to tell about them. How do we each choose our stories and tell our stories to reflect how we want to live in this world, yet still honor other ways of looking at our stories? What are our stories filtering in and filtering out? How do we discern what stories are relevant to our lives now? We’re also getting to know one another, so this Sunday I’ll also reflect on my own stories and our larger stories, how they’ve changed over time and continue to change, and what brought me to ministry and First Church Boston. I’m looking forward to seeing you this Sunday and beginning to weave some stories together."
