My writing

Make the sign of the cross, and you tell a story—the story of  God coming down from Heaven to Earth, extending His open arms to encompass the world in His sacrificial death. This story lies at the heart of a larger story, which stretches from before Creation "unto ages of ages." Story is so woven into the fabric of the universe that you might even say, with the poet Muriel Rukeyser, that "The Universe is made of stories, not atoms", that Story itself is the fabric of the universe, deeper and more durable than matter itself.   -  from "Parables for Mission  Planters"
