As we say good bye to 2012... one thought has been resonating in my brain for days... grace.
Working in ministry provides me opportunities see great examples of grace and too often not enough grace given. Now don't confuse the lack of grace with accountability or consequences, but especially when dealing with people we are supposed to love - which is everyone - I don't see enough of it.
For this reason this article really caught my eye...
Two preaching giants and the 'betrayal' that tore them apart.
This article tells the story (and very well) of what can happen when grace isn't given and ultimately what can happen when it is displayed perfectly.
Consider this and together we can make 2013 a Happy New Year.
