“We are storied creatures!” A reflection on Psalm 139:16

StoryAs I approach the forty year mark of my ministry I more and more appreciate that one’s life is part of a story. Over that span of years I spent many of my days in the give and take of pastoral ministry while at the same time I was marinating in Scripture preparing to give a good word on Sunday. Here’s a reflection on what it means to have such a storied life:

“We are storied creatures. There is no essential “I” apart from the story I am living, which is populated with a multi-generational cast of thousands. It is quite a story. It begins “in the beginning,” and ends only in God’s own good Time. And, praise be! God has written me into it, giving me a part to play, and, oh look, you have one too!” (From my Daily Devotional for today. See the whole post here.
