Larry Smith is passionate about helping people share their stories of becoming. He created a website - Six Word Memoirs - with numerous tools and prompts to make the sharing easier. One of his prompts turned out to be everyone’s favorite: “Pair down your life journey to six words.” It was inspired by Ernest Hemingway taking up a bar bet to write a novel in 6 words. Hemingway’s response: “For Sale: Baby shoes, never worn.” Besides making the telling of your journey easier, this six-word challenge helps people focus on, celebrate, remember and hold on to the essence of their stories of becoming.

So, in honor of this month's theme of "Becoming," we're going take up the challenge for ourselves. Lake Fellowship member Marnie Karger will lead this program of self-exploration with room for play, meaning, and challenges.

Today's meeting is via Zoom, and co-hosted by Lake Fellowship members Kristin Fulkerson and Terry McGlynn. You can join the group starting at 10:15 a.m. and the program will begin at 10:30.
