Narrative Theology #1

And I said to him:

Are there any answers to all of this?

And he said:

The answer is in a story

And the story is being told.

 

And I said:

But there is so much pain

And she answered, plainly:

Pain will happen.

Then I said:

Will I ever find meaning?

And they said:

You will find meaning

 

where you give meaning.

 

The answer is in a story

and the story isn’t finished.

 

Padraig O Tuama
