    Grace alive
     
    Just another manic Wednesday - but it couldn't have ended better: in a home group watching the last fifteen minutes of Babette's Feast
    and reflecting on the nature of grace....
      Grace, my friends, demands nothing from us but that we shall await it with confidence and acknowledge it in gratitude.
    - said the General in the book from which the film derives. Still can't define what grace is, precisely, but having shared stories of where people have seen grace at work, heard about graceful real-life characters, struggled with the challenge to step outside the culture of "deserving / undeserving", tonight, grace feels closer than before.
