The Story Tent is an age-appropriate application of Scriptural Reasoning based on three underlying principles.

Firstly, through learning and understanding about the others it aims to develop a deeper understanding of oneself.

Secondly, through an emphasis on exploring difference it facilitates the discovery of ways to disagree well.

Thirdly, at the heart of Scriptural Reasoning encounters is the concept of the meeting place and shared hospitality where friendships can be built. The space is not owned or inhabited by one group over another; rather it is a space where participants are both host and guest at the same time: a “tent of meeting” This in-between location becomes an interpretative space where all are welcome and all voices can be heard. This concept of the tent as a place of meeting was instrumental in the concept behind the development of the Story Tent.

These six sessions give teachers a first-hand encounter with Scriptural Reasoning as a base for understanding the Story Tent experience.

This week we held the first of our six bi-monthly workshops working in partnership with the Rose Castle Foundation and sponsored by Culham St Gabriel . We looked at the theme of “How we can be peacemakers?” and explored how the teachings from the Christian, Jewish and Muslim sacred texts bring wisdom to the issue of peacemaking.
