Magdalene: Grace, Even When We Fail

May 24, 2017

[PLEASE NOTE: this is the second in a series, so if you haven’t read the first one simply scroll down to yesterday’s blog and you can easily catch up]

Amy Frykholm continues — 

As the book moves from “Before the Beginning” to “End (no end),” grace appears as a series of never-ending invitations. We are invited into silence, into careful observation, into self-examination, into empathy, and into love. Even when we fail at any or all of these ventures, we are invited again.

— God’s grace, imaged as “a series of never-ending invitations.”  Can’t think of a much better image this side of eternity, can you?

How many of those “never-ending invitations” have you had?

I’ve lost count; too many to track.

Just glad Christ hasn’t lost track of me!

How about you?

  1. My goodness yes! Yes, I’m glad he hasn’t lost track of me! I was looking at the date on this as I reread through, this was my first non-internet day of seven with one in-between. I keep forgetting to tell you or forgot that I told you, when I go to church there with my second cousin, we go to Centenary UMC in Louisiana, MO. Every time I’m sitting in the pew writing a check, I think of you!
