“To err is human, to forgive divine,” wrote the English poet Alexander Pope. While it may be noble to pardon others, it often isn’t easy. And sometimes it can be even more difficult to forgive ourselves.
A dozen storytellers will share their personal experiences of forgiveness during a special live streamed 6-Minute Memoir “speed storytelling for a cause” event on Friday, September 25 at 7:30 p.m. hosted by the First Unitarian Church of Hamilton. The 6-Minute Memoir challenges presenters to tell a compelling tale in six minutes or less.
This fundraiser will benefit the work of the church as well as Hamilton Food Share, which supports 12 food banks and hot meal programs in the city.
Tickets are $10 per household and are available at uuhamilton.ca/6mm-tickets/.
Donations above the basic ticket price are gratefully accepted.
The lineup of storytellers includes retired TV journalist Jojo Chintoh and bestselling author Tom Wilson, along with folks from the Hamilton community and members of the First Unitarian Church, including its minister, Rev. Victoria Ingram. The 6- Minute Memoir is hosted by its founder, church member Anne Bokma, a journalist and author of the new memoir, My Year of Living Spiritually: One Woman’s Secular Quest for a More Soulful Life.
