Whether it’s a movie, a novel, a picture book, or a tale spun around the dining room table, we are drawn to stories. In I Corinthians 10, the Apostle Paul looks back on one of the most well-known stories of his people and uses the important images there to illustrate sobering truth for a fledgling church.
Unconsciously, we do the same thing when we look back on our own stories. Events that seemed trivial at the time reveal themselves, on further inspection, to have been pivotal moments. Periods of time that seemed to have been empty and without purpose — surprise! They were no more devoid of activity and life than a drop of pond water viewed under a microscope.
Recently Mary Hill asked if I would be willing to share my story on her blog — and she even provided a list of questions to guide my thinking. She’s a great friend who works hard to build community through her writing ministry. I always enjoy the mingling of stories that happens at her place each Monday.
This is your invitation to click on over to her site to read about the events that have shaped my faith and my writing. While you’re there, I hope you’ll take advantage of the opportunity to enjoy the stories of others!
