Christianity gives us a Grand Narrative for life.
For we live in stories. Stories about who I am and where I have come from. Stories of others, who they are and where they have come from. Stories that are shaped by the social discourses we are brought up in, coloured by culture, and tradition. Stories within stories.
Through stories meanings are formed, purpose in life is shaped, and through stories our consciousness develops and we become aware. Sometimes one story gets caught up in another for we live among the stories of others. Stories within stories, within stories.
The big story, which is the shell and the kernel of all the others, is the Grand Narrative. The Grand narrative will tell of the Genesis and the Consummation of all things, the beginning and the end. Through it our existential questions find a place creating a pathway for life.
What is your Grand Narrative?
