Legendary Saints Stories:
These look at the legends and the real people behind them, and include a number of links for further study. Eventually I hope to add similar pages on other "legendary saints" such as Stephen, George, Christopher, Francis, Augustine, Athenasius, Dominic and Bernard of Clairvaux, and Patrick. For more on researching Saints' Stories, see my Christian Storytelling Resources page
Raven - Stories from the Pacific Northwest Native Americans

HOMILIES - A "homily" is what I call my blend of storytelling and preaching - these stories have elements of both.
