Trinity Talks: Storytelling as a Medium for Change

Stories dig deep and open within us new ways of seeing and being in the world. They challenge worn-out narratives and birth fresh perspectives, illuminating the endless ways we’re connected to one another and to all life on this planet.

Join Trinity as we welcome storytellers whose work invites us to consider our place in this interconnected story — and how our awareness, presence, and action can influence its unfolding.

The Rev. Phil Jackson sits down with bestselling author Richard Powers to discuss his Pulitzer Prize-winning novel and explore our relationship with nature, our understanding of time, and the defiant act of hope in the face of the climate crisis.

The Overstory, praised as a “rousing, full-throated hymn to Nature’s grandeur” (San Francisco Chronicle) and “one of the best novels, period” (Ann Patchett), is a sweeping, impassioned work of activism and resistance.
