Between the Listening and the Telling

How Stories Can Save Us

Mark Yaconelli is well known and much beloved in rural Oregon and Siskiyou circles for his powerful community storytelling events with The Hearth, based in Southern Oregon. He distills his learnings and experiences and beautifully weaves them with story in his latest book Between the Listening and the Telling. This work explores story as a connector of hearts, people, groups and communities. Many books “tell”, some “show,” and precious few actually lead to transformation. This one does all three. Mark invites vulnerability by being vulnerable, courage by being courageous, tears by revealing heartfelt truths, and laughter by being very funny. Beautiful, inspiring, timely.

    I enjoyed thinking about the stories we tell each other, the stories we tell ourselves, and the stories we have been told. And more importantly, that our untold stories never go away and are held within our soul. Wonderful read!

    I got this book in preparation for the author speaking in my community. Not only was the book fantastic, but his presentation was as well. I’m a writer, so I really appreciated the importance placed on storytelling. The most powerful story in the book is about the fawn adventure the author and his daughter go on. Storytelling is our past, present, and future; this book perfectly illustrates why.
