Stories

I came across this quote recently.  It was attributed to Mary Piper, though I do not know who that is.  I am thinking about making this the theme of my blog.  In any case, the sentiments put forth here are what drive my desire to share my experiences.

 "Good stories have the power to save us...the best resource against the world's stupidity, meanness, and despair is the telling the truth with all its ambiguity and complexity.  We all make a difference by simply sharing our own stories with real people in real times and places...quilted together, these stories will shelter us all."

What thoughts do you have about this idea?
