15oz Flannery O'Connor Story Coffee Mug
"There is something in us as storytellers and as listeners to stories that demands the redemptive act,that demands the redemptive act that demands that what falls at least be offered to be restored." - Flannery O' Connor
What if Edmund’s story concluded right after betraying his family to the White Witch in the Chronicles of Narnia? What if Elizabeth Bennett never spoke to Mr. Darcy again after his first failed proposal in Pride and Prejudice?
The stories we cherish and tell over and over again are only complete after the fallen characters find a chance for redemption. Even when it’s rejected, the forgiving hand must be extended.
And if our need as beings who tell and consume stories is for the characters in our tales to see a chance at redemption, what does that tell us about the one who first wrote his story on our hearts? As the greatest characters in the greatest story written by the greatest author, we, too, are endlessly offered the opportunity to be redeemed, even from the darkest sins and the furthest falls from grace. We, too, can be restored.
