Consider this quote by Ana Lisa de Jong from “Lean Towards the Light This Advent and Christmas Season” compiled by Christine Aroney-Sine & Lisa DeRosa.

“… Advent reminds us of the eternal story,
in which life and death take turns
in entering from the wings.
And nothing in this world is ever final
while the Word has the enduring say.
We are the stories within a story.
Narratives within the larger Word.”

Holy Spirit, teach us to notice, understand, and celebrate the narratives within the larger Word.
