Glorious the grace that refuses to wait

until we deserve or earn it;

Glorious the grace that refuses to be rejected

and that remains always available, always inviting;

Glorious the grace that refuses to be confined

to places of privilege or dignity,

civility or decency.

 

Glorious the grace that reaches where law cannot go,

Glorious the grace that embraces the comfortable and the untouchable,

Glorious the grace that is equally at home in palaces and shacks,

 

Glorious the grace that is undiminished and undeterred

by the variety of need,

the diversity of the needy,

or the myriad languages in which

its message must be spoken.

 

Jesus, Grace-Giver, we are in awe of you

and the grace which you offer to all

whoever we may be.

 

Amen.
