We have critical information for you from Compassion HQ…
Since the times of first peoples, we human beings have sat in circle together to tell stories. Passed down over the generations, we told stories to delight and entertain our wonder, but also to warn and inform our curiosity. All stories, in one way or another, answered important questions that have captured the human spirit since our beginning:
“Who are we?” “Why are we here?” And, “Where are we going?”
These are really Big Questions, and so our answers to them make up a really Big Story!
Lately, Agents, it may feel like the Big Story of the World has “gone mad” or “turned upside down.” We may feel that we do not like where we are going right now, as things feel more uncertain, confusing, and divisive on Planet Earth.
We begin to ask, “What exactly is going on here?”
One possible explanation is that the Old Big Story we once believed in is not taking us where it once promised. The story and its answers are no longer working - or they never worked all that well - and so the story is starting to fall apart.
When a Big Story starts to fall apart, something very interesting happens: a crack appears where it once stood. This crack, although scary at first, is actually the space where a New Big Story about who we are, why we are here, and where we want to go can emerge.
Agents, we find ourselves now in the rare space between two stories.
In this crack, what type of a story do we wish to seed?
What grows here is up to us… But we cannot do it alone!
That’s why our mission today, Agents, is to joyfully invite a friend or community to join us on our journey into the New Story.
Send your friend or communities a link to this story, and take on tomorrow’s mission together!
