“Patience is the greatest prayer.” ~Hindi Proverb

One Big Messy Story.

December 19, 2019

 

Join us this Sunday as our own dear Franklin Taggart guest speaks for us.

From Franklin: 
All humans are myth makers and story tellers. Every one of us carries a story of life as we experience it.

As we come together, our stories blend with each other, creating an even greater narrative. The traditions we celebrate connect us with the stories of past ages, and as we add to our own understanding, even these traditions morph into new directions.

The process of blending our stories isn’t always easy. Many of our conflicts are rooted in mere differences in perception, as our central myths are challenged by different myths from other people and cultures.

 

The process of sorting out our individual stories and integrating them with each other is a messy one. It requires time and patience, but ultimately the process is worthwhile, resulting in a commonly held understanding that is deeper, wider, and longer than it was before.
