Lucy Duncan Tuesday, 18 January 2011
Storytelling is among the most raw and naked art forms. It is also one of the oldest and one we all participate in, making sense of our lives and connecting by telling our stories. Lucy Duncan has been telling stories professionally for over sixteen years - at festivals, in schools, and at conferences. In the past few years she has been working with Quaker monthly and yearly meetings, inviting members to tell their stories of spiritual experience, thereby assisting the community in hearing and responding to such spoken ministry, such 'narrative theology.' Lucy will tell stories of the deep listening process she uses to teach storytelling and of the transformation that can come by being willing to tell such tender stories in community, and be fully, deeply heard. Lucy serves Friends General Conference as associate secretary for Programs and Communications and is a member of Goshen Monthly Meeting, Philadelphia Yearly Meeting.
