No one has ever seen God; it is the only Son, who is close to the Father’s heart, who has made him known. (John 1:18)
Thus ends the prologue of the Gospel of St. John. The life of Jesus was, and continues to be, a great and unique narration of his Father. However, the narration needs a body that gives it a voice and a body that receives the voice, until the word becomes letter, a gesture that touches, leave marks, signs, words…
The narrations of this newsletter express the desire to tell a little of us, to narrate ourselves to each other, to learn, to share, to be present in the lives of people we like and that become way companions, helping us to widen the gaze beyond the boundaries of our local reality.
Narrating is another way of being born, of coming to light, of making a gesture of trust and openness, of sharing. Narrate to live and to make others live. Perhaps for this reason, the first newsletter of the European Education Centers coincides with the time of Advent, the waiting time for a birth.
The one we expect is the One who narrates God, His Father.
Our Christmas congratulations and our desire is to be able to find, also in our narrations, the marks of that God that no one has ever seen, but who was narrated within the events of the History, inhabited by Him.
