This pasted Sunday we talked about narrative and story - our cultural narrative, our own individual narrative our church narrative. We talked about how sometimes we need not to listen to certain narratives and replace them with healthier ones.
In conversations with people after church, and in my own thinking about this a bit more, I have a sense that this is significantly important work in our lives. What tapes (I show my age :) replay in your head over and over again that need to be stopped and changed to a healthier message? What in our cultural narrative needs to change? What in our religious narrative needs to change? Is there a story that can replace these?
Is there something from our scriptures or our experience or our reading that might be more helpful?
