  • Grace Notes


    I don’t know why I was so surprised, but I was.

    A few weeks ago, my pastor spoke on a controversial topic, racism, and did an absolutely amazing job, balancing truth and grace.

    That’s not what surprised me.

    What surprised me was learning that he was attacked for it, the target of mean-spirited vitriol, face-to-face encounters and emails.

    People love grace, but truth? Not so much.
