Our Life

In the drama of our life
many of us strain to write
and rewrite the script
over and over in our mind
in an effort to assure
for ourselves a genial story
or perhaps a starring role.
Surely the Creator smiles.

  1. This reminds me of what Ilia Delio writes in her amazing book “The Emergent Christ”: “Life begins with a steady trust that something of everlasting significance is working itself out in the universe and that our own lives are connected to this larger drama. The key here is a “larger drama,” a drama of participation not self fulfillment, a transcendence toward something more, not perfection of limited existence.”
