story

i came across this quote today and wanted to share---

"Madeleine L’Engle, in her book The Rock That Is Higher: Story as Truth, wrote: Story makes us more alive, more human, more courageous, more loving. Why does anybody tell a story? It does indeed have something to do with faith, faith that the universe has meaning, that our little human lives are not irrelevant, that what we choose or say or do matters, matters cosmically. It is we humans who either help bring about, or hinder the coming of the kingdom  .  .  .  . Our truest response to the irrationality of the world is to paint or sing or write, for only in such response do we find truth."
 
Quoted by Debbie Macomber in Once Upon a Time: Discovering Our Forever After Story

That is a really great quote. We need that faith and truth.

I couldn't agree more.
