On my first visit to Kendall on the NSW North coast I was startled to see the way a local sculptor had included the tiny town as part of God’s grand narrative. It reminded me that the eyewitnesses of Jesus’ life remembered how he lifted the stories of nobodies to new heights. I’ve always been struck by the remarkable fact that ordinary fishermen like Peter, Andrew, James and John have loaned their names and their biographies to millions around the world, just because they followed him. And nowhere-towns like Bethlehem and Nazareth have become the destination for millions of pilgrims, simply because he made their story part of his. Small towns can house big stories.
