All the stories we tell borrow their power from the Great Story God is writing.
– John Eldredge
Isak Dinesen suggests God’s plans run across the sea and the snowy mountain where man’s eyes see no track.
What if it is true?
It is true, my friends.
Everything is going to be okay.
God is drawing all of our stories toward the breathtaking restoration of all things.
Along the way, his bright Kingdom often breaks in through what seems at first only mundane and insignificant.
As his Spirit becomes the strength of our hearts and teaches us to feed on him as our portion forever, our Father readies us to love in ways previously impossible, becoming by day and decade vessels of a Kingdom outbreak in the lives of those around us.
As we immerse ourselves in Advent and prepare for the wonder and beauty of Christmas, I invite you to join me for Part 1 of A Christmas Feast. Together, let us remember the beauty, cost, and largeness of the Tale that has woven our ordinary lives into its surprise, delight, and power. I think you’re going to love it.
