15 months ago, StoryCorps selected Richmond as one of four anchor communities for its One Small Step initiative, an urgent national initiative to repair the fabric of our divided nation. One Small Step brings together pairs of strangers with divergent perspectives for conversations about their lives, in order to decrease feelings of contempt and help Americans see one another as human beings.

StoryCorps founder, Dave Isay, will join St. Paul’s on Thursday, June 16 at 6:30 p.m. to discuss the One Small Step initiative. Learn more about what One Small Step has achieved in Richmond, what they have planned for the future and how you can participate.

Dave Isay is the founder of StoryCorps and the recipient of numerous broadcasting honors, including six Peabody Awards and a MacArthur “Genius” Fellowship. He is the author/editor of five books that grew out of his public radio documentary work, including three New York Times bestsellers: Listening Is an Act of Love (2007), Mom: A Celebration of Mothers from StoryCorps, and All There Is: Love Stories from StoryCorps (2012); as well as Ties That Bind: Stories of Love and Gratitude From the First Ten Years of StoryCorps (2013) and Callings: The Purpose and Passion of Work (2016). In 2015, Dave was recognized with the TED Prize, awarded annually to one exceptional individual with a creative, bold vision to spark global change.

May’s Book Club read is Atlas of the Heart: Mapping Meaningful Connection and the Language of Human Experience by Brene Brown.

If we want to find the way back to ourselves and one another, we need language and the grounded confidence to both tell our stories and to be stewards of the stories that we hear. In Atlas of the Heart, we explore eighty-seven of the emotions and experiences that define what it means to be human and walk through a new framework for cultivating meaningful connection. This is for the mapmakers and travelers in all of us.

Facilitated by the Rev. Keli Shipley Cooper.

April’s Book Club read is If God is Love, Don’t Be a Jerk: Finding a Faith that Makes Us Better Humans by John Pavlovitz.

In If God Is Love, Don’t Be a Jerk, John Pavlovitz examines the bedrock ideas of our religion: the existence of hell, the utility of prayer, the way we treat LGBTQ people, the value of anger, and other doctrines to help all of us take a good, honest look at how the beliefs we hold can shape our relationships with God and our fellow humans—and to make sure that love has the last, loudest word.

Emma Breeden will be facilitating.
