Episode 71: Story Table – “Withering, Weathering and Witnessing.”

This is a special Story Table episode of the Antioch Podcast. Story Table is an story-telling event developed by Dr. Penny Lyn Dykstra Pruim and regular Antioch Podcast team-member Dr. Michelle Loyd-Paige at Calvin University as a way to promote intergroup civil dialogue. Modeled after similar events at Fuller Seminary, these storytelling events encourage participants and audience members to become more skillful at these kinds of conversations by first taking the initiative to listen. All the story-tellers sit around a table, telling their stories with the aid of the event facilitator. All the stories are curated around a theme. The theme of this event is “Withering, Weathering, and Witnessing Race and Racism.”
