In order to expand our knowledge and appreciation of our place in the cosmos, in terms of both space and time, the group will visit a fossil site in eastern Tennessee near Jonesborough. When a pit trapped many animals between 7 to 4.5 million years ago, their fossilized remains were preserved in stone. After experiencing the site, the group will visit the International Storytelling Center in nearby Jonesborough, TN. Saturday evening and Sunday morning will be dedicated to creating our own versions of stories that recount the past and point to the human role in creating a mutually enhancing future.
