Unlocking Grace – Unitarian Universalist Style

Grace has different meanings to different people. In the words of some theologians …

“Grace strikes us and says… You are accepted. You are accepted, accepted by that which is greater than you, and the name of which you do not know. Do not ask for the name now; perhaps you will find it later. Do not try to do anything now; perhaps later you will do much. Do not seek for anything; do not perform anything; do not intend anything simply accept the fact that you are accepted. ”  – Paul Tillich

“Sometimes, when you want to forgive, when you just don’t want to fight anymore, but you don’t know what else to do, your only job is to open the door to grace, the unexpected gift that makes a way out of no way. ”  – Soul Matters Minister

“Community is another source of grace. In community we are meant to grace one another; to be sources of grace; healers by way of grace.” – Matthew Fox

On Sunday, let’s Unlock Grace together!
