Similar to StoryCorps, a national program committed to recording the stories of people’s lives and then making those stories available online and on radio, this project seeks to record the spiritual stories of people that relate to different dimensions of love. In particular, it is emphasizes thinking of love as a gift to be given and received in many different forms. While this project is similar to StoryCorps, its underlying philosophy is that of “reverse evangelism.” Rather than trying to persuade and convince others of some spiritual truth, we want to hear from them what makes life meaningful.
