The New Narrative introduces ReThink, a new event series focused on facilitated discussions on the topics that matter to us most.
Who we are and how we appear in the world can greatly influence the opportunities for work and money that are available to us. What we do for a living and how much money we make can also influence how the world perceives us and what we think of ourselves. The second of three sub themes we want to explore for the New Narrative event on the theme of Work/Money is Identity. What story ideas do you have for this sub theme?
There’s an obvious power dynamic involved with work and money in our world. They exist as omnipresent institutions in our thoughts and daily endeavors. No matter how much we try, it’s nearly impossible to go more than a couple minutes without thinking about both. We’re interested to hear your story ideas that could work for the Work/Money/Power theme of our upcoming event.
Melissa Tucker shares her story of being a single, 40-year-old pastor exploring the message she received about dating from growing up in the church and trying to have something close to dating life now in her unique role now.

KishaLynn Elliott shares her story of grappling with the conflict between spirituality and sexuality as a 16-year-old girl, and acting upon her attraction to women for the first time.
“I loved how the internet enabled me to be who I wished I could be in real life. Online, I could do the things I wished I could do if God wasn’t constantly watching. And boy, did I do things.”
