A story told is the breaking of the silence.
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God” (John 1:1).
“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth” (Genesis 1:1).
“He was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being” (John 1:2-3).
“Before the foundations of the world, He chose us in Him… in love” (Ephesians 1: 4).
“In Him was life, and the life was the Light of men. The Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it” (John 1:4-5).
In the breaking of the silence, as in the breaking of bread, a story is told to nurture the life of the world.
Man shall not live by fact alone.
