If you can’t get grace in a church, where can you get it? I remember thinking that to myself nearly weekly as a church administrator. I call that a dope slap question. You know, a question where the answer should be obvious. YES. Yes, allow grace for more paid time off for an employee with family issues. Yes, give grace and help a church family with their electric bill, for the 4th time. Yes, be grateful for grace and talent, when asked to host an event that will surely tax time and resources.
Now, out in the real world, the question is revised but still a touchstone…If you can’t get grace from a Christian/me, where can you get it? I’m a child of the most high God, what I’ve been given, I need to pass on. It does no good to hold on tight, generalize, judge, or be chained to preconceived notions.
Here are three favorite grace messages in music.
Grace set free
History & power
Amen & amen
