narrative: n. a story or a description of a series of events
There’s a narrative going on about our lives all the time. We’re always part of a story, actually many stories all at once. Were you part of the Black Friday story that was the top news story of Thanksgiving? Do you carry pepper spray to ward off shoppers?
I hope that you are not in that story.
This Sunday at the Gathering Church we begin the Advent Season, an intentional way to connect to the most important story, the story of God drawing near by coming as a person.
One of the first story tellers about this person, Matthew, begins with a list of a bunch of people who were already part of the story, Matthew 1:1-17.
Curt Lowndes, a recent graduate from Duke Divinity School and a member of the church Leadership Team will teach us this Sunday. He will give us a great start to center our lives in God’s story.
I don’t know about you, but just a couple of days into the holiday season I already need to be re-connected to the story that matters.
