October 8, 2012: No Better Story

Robert E. Webber

I call for a spirituality that is not a mere search for a transcendent experience but a spirituality that is rooted in the unique story of God. I ask you not to subscribe to the relativism that all paths lead to God but to a countercultural affirmation that God, the Creator of the universe, has cut a path into our history and, having become one of us in Jesus, unites us with himself. Look at all the religions of the world and you will find no better story than this.
