The desire to pull together the pieces of our lives is intrinsic to our humanity, something with constantly do without knowing it. We desire to tell stories, and in this issue of Ruminate, our contributors teach us about what stories are, how they work, and, perhaps, why we crave them.
They tell us stories about the stories they were told, the stories they hoped for, the stories they hated. We read about red birds at a sports bar, parables in church, fisherman spreading their nets for the moon. These stories show us the way we weave our own lives into fable, piece by piece, and show us, ultimately, how this can be a life-giving act.
