Sermon: True as Remembered and Affirmed
Description: The Moth is a cultural phenomenon where people tell true-life stories by heart to a live audience. The Moth is also a popular podcast and NPR radio program. At the end of each broadcast, the host reminds all listeners that Moth stories are “true as remembered and affirmed by the storytellers.” This sermon explores the
layers of truth within storytelling, and takes special delight in the phrase “remembered and affirmed.”
