Children at the Well 2014 is underway!
Our second meeting of the year was Sunday January 12th, and the group of 17 youth tellers, 3 story coaches (Mary Murphy, Nancy M. Payne, and Micki Groper) and 2 apprentice coaches (Ben Russell and Khalafalla Osman) will be meeting each Sunday (excepting Easter Sunday) until May 4th, when we'll be holding our final performance. Stay tuned for news about that!
Saturday, January 11th, 3 tellers- Macaela, Michal, and Shadeh- joined Paula in meeting with FLEX exchange students from Ukraine, Moldova, Russia, Armenia, etc., who are living with host families in this area for the school year. The meeting took place at the Albany Unitarian Universalists. There was a screening of Stepping Toward the Lion, and the C@W students talked about why they chose certain stories to learn to tell. We all came up with stories we felt could describe who we are, and what we believe in. It was a very friendly, thoughtful group and we had a great time.
Sunday January 19th is the Winter Lights performance of the Interfaith Story Circle. Three of our C@W youth tellers (Shadeh, Anam, and Macaela) will be featured, and one (Kalyan) will serve as MC for part of the event.
There will also be a 6th grade chorus from the AnNur Islamic School, and the Schenectady High School Chamber Chorus!
All Welcome! 2 PM, at the Islamic Center of the Capital District (see flier on Home Page of our website).
