The Big Thank You
I’ve recently mentioned that our church is experiencing a high volume of illness, surgery, relocations etc. Individually and as a group we have been praying for strength, healing, and support. But, in the last two weeks we’ve experienced nothing short of a collective miracle. Six members were back to church following surgery and illness.

Full Stop
There is this four-way stop I deal with at least twice a day. Generally, it works well, and the accidents are few. Lately I’ve noticed when traffic is light the other drivers seem to feel they don’t need to come to a full stop. They pull up at a slower speed, but never really stop. My driver’s education teacher called it a “rolling stop”.

Generous Portion of Grace
It feels like bad things happen in groups. The urban myth is that death comes in threes. People actually find themselves waiting for the next death to strike. Certainly, when things do go badly among groups it can be deflating, discouraging, depressing, and paralyzing.

Grace Inspired Unity
A tornado wipes out the main street of a small town. A hurricane crosses an island leveling buildings and lives. That 100-year flood just happened for the second time in five years. Fires light the sky and incinerate an ancient forest leaving mankind and animals homeless. Tragedy and hardship seem to strike daily.

Inclusive Grace
The picture was powerful yet simple. Fifteen people standing in front of an old cabin wearing the white coats of physicians. A few poorly dressed children scattered about, nearly ghost like in appearance, blend into the backdrop. The idea was that of Russell Ledet, the photographer was Abedoyin Johnson. So why mention it at all?

Grace Actually
Grace, that attitude of God which allows him to forgive, support, and love us no matter what we do. It’s hard for us humans to wrap our brain around that kind of love, but we know it’s true. This month in our Drop-In class we are studying the faces of grace. Some of them are surprising.
