Ivy Tech Storytelling Series

The Ivy Tech Storytelling Series focuses on divisive issues — such as race, reproductive rights, and immigration — and makes them personal. In this guest column, Reverend Forrest Gilmore, pictured here at a dress rehearsal for the second live-storytelling event, recalls a heart-wrenching experience from his past. He also shows how stories help us make sense of our lives and are an “opportunity to expand our capacity for community.” | Courtesy photo
