The Larger Story


“Story doesn’t just tell us something and leave it there, it invites our participation. A good storyteller gathers us into the story. We feel the emotions, get caught up in the drama, identify with the characters…Honest stories respect our freedom, they don’t manipulate us… They bring us into the spacious world in which God creates and saves and blesses…they offer us a place in the story, invite us into the large story that takes place under the broad skies of God’s purposes.” ~ Eugene Patterson
