Stories from a Village invites you to explore the role of faith in our lives through personal narrative and critical reflection. This website is a project launched by Stone Village Church, but we hope it reaches far beyond our walls. We chose the name in part to honor the community that inspired us, but also to acknowledge the diversity of the Christian experience.
We believe that every human being is created and gifted by God; therefore, every human being is invited to be a real part of the church, regardless of background, belief, sexual orientation, gender identity, class, age or any of the other categories people use to separate or exclude. We believe that when we share the truth of our lives, we learn that we are not alone.
The stories you’ll find here are stories of faith and doubt. Stories of struggle and triumph. Stories of marginalization and homecoming. Stories of love. We hope people of all backgrounds and traditions will read, listen, share and engage with these stories.
