Event description

Description

Sabeel Center proudly presents Keeping Faith - Sisters of Story!

With the recent uptick of hateful and vitriolic language in this country, Rohina Malik, a Muslim storyteller, wanted to create a project to demonstrate peace and commonalities between us all. She approached Susan Stone, a Jewish storyteller, and Kim Schultz, who identifies as a Christian storyteller, with an idea: what if they all told stories from their faiths with the goal of bringing people together and showing peace, curiosity, and similarities amongs the faiths. Both Kim and Susan jumped at this opportunity and KEEPING FAITH: SISTERS OF STORY was born.

Each storyteller tells 3 stories inspired by their respective faith journeys. They will be joined by a cultural musical storyteller, Lucia Thomas, on violin, oud, and guitar.
