Liferequirestaking risks.We need courageto live everything…to not be so carefulthat we don’t experienceall that God has gifted to us.We can discover joy in sorrowso long as fear does not get in the way.

Just Mercy

Wemust prayfor those whohave lost their way.Justice is emptyif not imbued with grace.Forgiveness is powerful,a reverent acceptance thathumility is the hand of Godpulling off the veil of our humanness.

The Peace of the World

Peaceis ahealing word,invoking avision of wholeness.It is God’s hope for us.We live in a broken place.When we spread God’s peace to others,we place our hands into the world’s woundsand with Christ, become healers of the world.

Abundant Grace

Graceis allaround usin abundance.Grace takes great courage.Grace is strength not weakness.Do not use grace sparingly.Accept grace when offered to you.Against hate, grace is the best defense.The power of grace is within us all.
