A Heart for Story
Show Notes

In this 7th episode of this 12 part mini-series, Alissa brings in newly ordained priest Fr. Will Rooney to chat about his heart for story.  The two friends talk about their common love for story--the ones that come from each of us and the Grandest Story of all time.  So much of this episode reminds us all how important we are to that Story.  Tune in to hear:

  • A crazy connection Alissa figures out in real time about a beloved priest she knows.
  • How God uses the Church to give us a bigger story.
  • The imagery of God singing all things into being.
  • And also the imagery of God being able to use notes of discord to create something magnificent.  
  • Our stories giving us a sense of rootedness in who we are.
  • The gift that are priests who recognize the wholeness of people and the value of their story.
  • How God can take the hard parts of our story and redeem them.
  • How Fr. Will's heart for story influences the way he lives his vocation.
  • Looking for the way God has worked in our story.
  • How the sacraments proclaim that we are part of God's story.
  • The hope that God's bigger story provides us.
