this weekend i have been impacted once again by the power of what it is to write one's own story. it is one thing to think about your life, one thing to talk about it and even receive therapeutic help in understanding it- but it is an entirely different process to sit down and put words to what your experience of life and relationship has been.
where do you come from? how has your family marked and named you? what words have been spoken to your body? what are your tragedies? what do you do with shame and glory? how do you carry yourself in relationship because of those things?
the last question also brings you to the answers of: how do you understand sin and salvation?- essentially, how do you live out the gospel in relationship as a result of your story?
