Between the Listening and the Telling
How Stories Can Save Us
Mark Yaconelli is well known and much beloved in rural Oregon and Siskiyou circles for his powerful community storytelling events with The Hearth, based in Southern Oregon. He distills his learnings and experiences and beautifully weaves them with story in his latest book Between the Listening and the Telling. This work explores story as a connector of hearts, people, groups and communities. Many books “tell”, some “show,” and precious few actually lead to transformation. This one does all three. Mark invites vulnerability by being vulnerable, courage by being courageous, tears by revealing heartfelt truths, and laughter by being very funny. Beautiful, inspiring, timely.
