WHAT IS A LIVING STORY?

We will be exploring another kind of story, one that represents the “story-in-the- making” that we all are currently living. This is what we call the “Living Story.” Each of us lives our own story; how we do life together becomes a Living Story.

To define the Living Story, we note that it is a story in constant evolution, and a story about the future that must be told repeatedly if it is to come to pass. This is different from other stories in that it is a “work-in-progress.”

Part of the story is what has already happened, part is what is current or about to happen, and part is how we want this to shape our future. The Living Story is complete up to the moment. It may not be fully realized, but it has a beginning, middle and an end that leads to a new beginning. Even when there is tension between what is and what could be, the Living Story has energy, hope and promise.
