About Stone Soup: In many versions, the underlying theme of the Stone Soup story is that of collaboration; that with each of us bringing what we have, we can create something wonderful that nourishes us all. An old wise woman (or man) happens upon a starving village, and "teaches" the lessons of generosity, trust, and collective effort by sharing their wisdom, creativity, and patience. According to Wikipedia, it would seem the tale is primarily about "trickery": Strangers come along, wanting food, and eventually manage to fool unwitting villagers into giving up what they have, producing a nice soup for themselves. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stone_Soup The intentions, meanings, and variations of this "parable" seem near-infinite, and are almost always tied to the place, history, culture and context in which they are told. What will our version be?
Stone Soup FAQ:Q: Will there actually be soup?A: Yes, for everyone!
Q: There won't really be stones in the soup, though, will there?A: Yes, there will be stones in the soup. It would not be Stone Soup if the stones were left out of the process.
Q: How will we make Stone Soup that honors both all the participants' suggestions, and all the dietary restrictions?A: Magic! Also, incredibly careful planning.
Come! ROCK a movement with us! http://uuare.org/conference
