Don’t just “like” this–LOVE this! Thank you for sharing. And the graphic is beautiful.
A humbling reminder as I start out my week. Some of the insight that came out of the “Dark Ages” is really remarkable, isn’t it? Thank you for stopping by, Tamara.
This is so DEEP it makes my head spin! Lovely!
Heather – I know. I had to read it through a few times before it really sunk in. Then, it wouldn’t leave me alone! This guy was truly a visionary for the reformation of the church. I love that we know so much about him, that his words are still profoundly relevant 1000 years later.
That is so spot on and so entirely for this moment in time.
Hey Jennifer – loved chatting with you today. Yes, this day has been filled with grace, hasn’t it?
It’s all about grace isn’t it and that’s what I am experiencing once again…a renewal of grace.
Glenda – Always love hearing from you. You’re always such an encouragement to me, especially when it comes to living out and living in and living out the gift of grace. Bless you, my friend.
Made me laugh.
A few years ago I was working construction, and during lunch was reading “The Cloud of Unknowing”.
There was one guy, Dave, an ex-con, who was fascinated by the title, and he’d hang around and talk. A theologian he was not.
He eventually borrowed about $200 from me, and on the next payday promptly paid me back. I was a bit surprised (he had a rep for not paying up), and one of the other guys said that Dave probably had a pretty good idea of what would happen to him if he didn’t pay me back.
I’d like to think that it was something else – that grace reached out to him, and that he responded with free will, to walk an honest path.
Andrew – Oh my goodness, YES! I LOVE this story, and I absolutely believe the way you do, that Dave was shown the blessing of free will acting under the power of grace. LOVE THIS – thank you for sharing this story. Wow.
