Speaker: Deacon Lawrence Klimecki

Do you have a sense that there is something wrong with the world? Even more, do you think that you should be able to do something about it? Are you are not sure where to begin? Do you feel a little lost?

Many of us have lost our sense of story. We have lost, not only the story of mankind but our individual story as well. We no longer see the stories we tell each other as anything other than entertainment. But the stories we tell each other have always had a spiritual element as well. Whether they are parables from the Bible, folktales, books, television or movies there is a structure to stories, a structure based on our spiritual journey. That is why they have the ability to resonate so deeply within us.

In his talk at our June 8th breakfast meeting, Deacon Lawrence will look at our most popular forms of storytelling, with particular attention on popular movies, connecting them to our spiritual journey. He’ll look at how screenwriters are trained to put a structure in their stories that reflects the journey of our lives. By examining this structure we can gain new insights into our lives and begin to see the world and the obstacles we encounter in a new and different way.

“Everyone should see themselves as the hero of their story, heroes who can change the world.”
