Reviewer: Veritas Publishing

The Jewish expression that ‘God made man because he loved stories’, is given further authenticity by Megan McKenna, US author, lecturer, retreat leader and spiritual director. In an age when texting and emoticons appear to be relegating storytelling and the joy of words to the dustbin of history, Megan McKenna wonderfully illustrates the many layers of stories which exist in our lives and bring power and truth to living. In a book she describes as being about storytelling and spirituality, she reminds her audience at the outset that ‘Stories are the glue that hold us together in whatever groups we belong to…’ In over 230 pages using Scripture and tales and examples from many traditions, she then proceeds to use stories themselves to articulate in a warm and engaging style the vital importance and wonder of storytelling and of how God invites each of us to enter into the story. Each chapter concludes with a short section of questions/activities/prayers for personal or group use.

We Live Inside a Story

by Megan McKenna

Unpeel the layers of your spiritual life… In the realm of the Spirit, and when dealing with our own souls and the souls of others, we are often at a loss for words. We have a sense, maybe even an image, of what we want to share, ask or communicate, but words are harder to find and express. Stories are the glue that holds us together in whatever groups we belong to, even if we only visit or find ourselves on the margins. In a sense, our god is a story being told and god is seeking for all of us to listen, to enter into the story and become one. Megan Mckenna uses images of Russian nesting dolls to illustrate the many layers of the stories that exist in each of our lives, particularly in relation to the Spirit. Stories are critical to living and are intertwined with truth in such a way that we can carry them with us, remember them and pass them along, sharing them as needed. We live inside a story. We live inside God.
