Stories are the currency of humanity

CS Lewis once said that George MacDonald’s fairy tales had ‘baptised his imagination’ and opened up a path to believing in God. The best stories draw us in and give us a new way of seeing the world. That’s what happened to Lee Strobel – except that he lived his story out in the real world. A close brush with death stripped him of the mental acuity for which he has become famous as he has made the case for central Christian beliefs and established himself as one of the leading apologists of our time. Lee’s openness and candour make for compelling reading. Tragedy doesn’t always deepen faith, but it’s clear that he encountered God in the midst of his brokenness.

That’s the same place where serial adventurer Bear Grylls found out just how real his faith was as an adolescent. To be fair, anyone who can carry off that name has to have a few remarkable stories in their backpack, and he sure does.

There are two kinds of remarkable, though: moments that make you reach for superlatives, and the glorious hidden in the mundane. This month’s feature on Cornerstone – the country’s only Christian adoption agency – might sit in the latter, but it’s no less inspiring. The Bible tells us that God sets the lonely in families, and as part of God’s kingdom that family could well be yours. Raising children is an awesome responsibility and I’m proud that there’s an institution standing up for the ways of God in our nation.

This is an issue of fantastic and varied stories which are all united by the one great story God has been telling since the beginning of time. Find your place in it and invite someone else in – live life to the full and share it!
