In recent years, Storytellers events have offered guests fascinating glimpses into personalities and themes involving church history.
The program at 7:00 p.m., Saturday, November 23, will be no different. Guests will hear stories from Lachlan Mackay, Barbara Walden, and Carole Price about “Community of Christ Women of the Past.” Also, a few audience members might contribute stories of their own.
All are welcome to the event, which will be at the Village Heights Congregation, 1009 Farview Drive, in Independence, Missouri. Storytellers programs are sponsored by the Community of Christ Historic Sites Foundation.
They’re back, and they brought smiles, memories, and insights with them.
Fifty-one guests who joined a tour to the Holy Land sponsored by the Community of Christ Historic Sites Foundation, shared in a memorable pilgrimage.
The event, the foundation's first to the land where Jesus walked, featured three stages.
The first, a "pre-tour" October 20-23, included visits to Petra and the Dead Sea. The main tour, scheduled October 22-31, featured Jerusalem, Nazareth, Caesarea, and Jericho. Finally, the “post-tour” event, Oct. 30-Nov. 4, treated guests to the pyramids and the Red Sea. Some even got to ride camels!
Along the way, guests heard stories and learned about the church’s history in the region.
