Catholic Education - We Come To Share Our Story.
Ziemann, G. Patrick
This address focuses on the power of sharing individual stories and empowering individuals to be strong in their lives. Numerous anecdotes are used throughout the speech to address the power of the encounter. The speaker asserts that the telling of individuals' stories, verbally and in writing, leads to encounters of faith and moments of love. The presenter sees one of the scandals of Catholic education as the failure to produce leaders. Leadership is developed by the sharing of stories and by being responded to by those who care. Two goals for evangelization can be achieved by listening and responding to the stories people hear: (1) prophetic solidarity; and (2) patient reconciliation. (EH)
