Life is actively story-telling and story-receiving, and life lived well holds each in equal parts. Are we listening as much as we’re talking? Are we giving as we are receiving? What can we do to enhance our own story? And are we appropriately enthusiastic about the story of others? What we will come to discover in the fullness of time is that it is the SAME story, and we are each, in turns, heroes, foils, protagonists and antagonists. So live into the story, enrich it and move the plot forward. For sacred literature we give thanks. Blessed Be, and Amen.
