Practice: Falling into Grace

How do you fall into Grace? Perhaps we could talk first about why it is, or how it is, that you don’t fall into Grace. Grace is everywhere. In our society, we are taught that it’s not—that it’s something special; that there are x, y, and z ways to get there; that there is not […]
