I’m quite nervous now. As you can see, I have begun to blog. You are reading it – but you may find me boring and never come back. I may upset you (though that would be better than boring you; we could have a dialogue). I may run out of things to say, or more likely the self-discipline to keep saying them. For all those circumstances I ask my future self and any readers if you are indeed out there to remember grace. I hope that when I am annoyed by news reports or people I will remember how much I’ve been let off the hook and offer those in question some of the grace I have received. I hope that when I disagree with people I will do so with understanding and tolerance. And I suppose I also hope for more grace to come my way – after all, where sin abounds, God’s grace abounds all the more. That’s something I never want to forget.
Grace to you.
