Eugene Peterson Quote

Peterson said that God’s story is a “Sprawling, capacious narrative.”

Sprawling meaning ungraceful, which I take to be you and me.
Capacious meaning roomy, which I take as God’s story being big enough to fit all our subplots.
And Narrative, which is an account of events or a Story.

We are Storytellers because our Father is the grandest one.

We connect with story because we are in one.

I have to ask myself all the time: what kind of story are you telling?

Then I have to ask: How can I make it better?
