Storytelling is the most powerful way to put ideas into the world.

Robert McKee

In a world where all of us are bombarded every day with news and stories that divide and sow fear, we thought we’d set up a small corner of the web to do the opposite: to bring us closer together. It’s a tall order, but we thought we’d take it one step at a time using stories.

In CoexiStory, you’ll find a treasure trove of stories, conversations, and thoughts that explore what words like peace, empathy, and coexistence really mean. These stories are about people like you who’ve connected with other folks and places they never expected to. They’re about journeys of faith, leadership, conflict, art, and love. They’re about questions that chip away at the things that make humans vastly different and the things that make us exactly the same.

Who are we? We’re a group of volunteer storytellers, journalists, students, and friends who devote a little of our time each day to make this small corner of the web a meaningful and positive experience for you.
