"...once you've lived a good story,....you can't go back to being normal; you can't go back to meaningless scenes stitched together by the forgettable thread of wasted time."
I visited a Christian book store I used to work at the other day to touch base w/ a former co-worker & convey how sad/shocked I was to learn that the founder (a friend/my former boss) had passed away. Naturally, I was contemplating how I might (should!) be living differently in light of how brief & fragile life is - and that's when I happened upon this book. I bought it on a whim - thinking my son, an avid cyclist, might like it - but was surprised to learn that it was written more "for me"- and it's not so much a story as it is about story and how it parallels life. I underlined things that "rang true" or that I've found to be true, etc. & tho't to share some of them here.
so how can we know the way?"
Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life.
No one comes to the Father except through me.
