My story is important, not because it is mine, God knows,

but because if I tell it anything like right,

the chances are you will recognize that in many ways it is also yours.

 

Maybe nothing is more important than we keep

track, you and I, of these stories of who we are

and where we have come from

and the people we have met along the way

because it is precisely through these stories

in all their particularity...

that God is somehow made known to each of us

most powerfully and personally.

 

If this is true, it means that to lose track of our stories

is to be profoundly impoverished

not only humanly but spiritually.
