Stories that could be true
Our place in the cosmic scheme of things is a large question mark at the back of our minds. As poet William Stafford suggests in “A Story That Could Be True,” we journey through the world like homeless souls, wondering if maybe there’s a greater home where we might truly belong and be at peace. “Who are you really, wanderer?” Stafford asks. This question has many answers. John the Baptist accepts that he’s not the Christ; he’s just the messenger. Jesus embraces his dentity as the beloved Son of God. Consider what could be true – of you.
