A Space for Stories: A Photographed Narrative of my Summer at The Haven

Posted on November 2, 2017 by PLT Staff

Megan Helbling’s final paper reflecting on her PLT summer internship at The Haven in 2017. For more information on the Summer Internship in Lived Theology, click here.

Excerpt: “An empty place is a malleable place: and each Wednesday morning, our writing group comes to read, write, and create together. Laughter and poetry and questions and prose travel through the air and bounce of the rafters, heard by the same stain glass that once listened to psalms and hymns and sermons and prayers. This space is like the pages of paper I bring to the writing group each week. They begin empty, steady lines guiding the writer towards a sentence, a story. This place remains forever filled with conversations and creations. I enter now in familiarity, expectation, and anticipation.”
