Notes

For Lent this year, we’re going to do something a little different. Let us set the scene. It’s dark in the church except for the beam of a single spotlight. There’s no noise. A person steps into the lit circle and begins to tell a story. The story will be a true one, from the speaker’s own life. That will be all. No musical accompaniment. No notes. No visual aids. No gimmicks at all. Just a person and a story. Afterwards, we’ll move the gathering to Kinsolving Hall for fellowship and discussion.

jared 2jaredOur first storyteller is artist Jared¬†Dunten. A breathtakingly gifted painter and one of the founders of the Will Walk Foundation, he is one of Austin’s treasures; for proof, ¬†read his interview with the Badass Project. After being paralyzed from the neck down in 2000, Jared learned to paint, holding the brush between his teeth. Far from a handicap, this gives him a unique sense for every stroke he makes. Come to hear him tell us about art of persistence in being human.
