There Is A LARGER Story...

If you walk into any large mall, museum, amusement park, university, or hospital, you will typically find a very large map displayed with the typical red star and next to it the very encouraging words: “You are here”


These location maps are offered to visitors as a way for them to orient themselves to their situation, to offer some perspective on things around them. This is what we might call the Big Picture. As if to say this is where you are in that larger picture. Hopefully now you know where to go. You now have your bearings.

Wouldn’t it be great if we had something like this for our lives? What would it be worth to have that overall perspective?


As if to know: “This is the Story in which you now find yourself. Here is how it all got started. Here is what is actually going on. Here is where it all went wrong. Here is what will happen next. And now this — this is the role you’ve been given. And if you want to fulfill your destiny, this is what you must do. These are your cues. And here is how things are going to turn out in the end.”


Again I ask the question… Wouldn’t it be great if we had something like this for our lives? Well… You can. You can discover the real Story and your part in it. Maybe not with perfect clarity, maybe not in all the detail that we would like, but with greater clarity than most of us have right now.


Before you can understand your story, you need to know the larger story you are part of, and that is God’s Story. Here at The Crossing we want to help you understand God’s Story and find that clarity, and we do that through the Rooted Experience that is launching in September.
