This week at BBUUC….
February 10: Reverend Jack Ford will present: “Grace”
Someone wrote to me recently: “I keep hearing the word ‘grace’, whether it’s in the song Amazing Grace or Wendell Berry’s poem … ‘I rest in the grace of the world and am free’. In googling it, I find mostly religious references: … being the recipient of God’s love, in tune with Jesus, etc. For a UU, I would love to know what that word means.”
I myself have stumbled over that word ‘GRACE’ for the longest time. Even as a Baptist I kind of ignored it because I didn’t really understand. Webster says Grace is a special favor, unmerited divine assistance, a virtue coming from God. Grace is “three sister
goddesses in Greek mythology who are the givers of charm and beauty.” According to the Apostle Paul, God said, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.” Is this a concept which has any meaning for us as UUs?
