The Story We Want to Live In — P. Wadell

To be a Christian is to place our life in the center of a story of God we want to make our own.  We do not inhabit this story passively; rather, we strive to appropriate it.  We want to embody its viewpoints and perspectives; we wish its values and its vision to be our own.  We want to grow so at home in the saga of Israel and Jesus that it gradually reformulates not only our reading of the world but also our understanding of ourselves.
