To open a thread on Grace..... For me, Grace is that in which I "live and move and have my being". If that sounds very "mystical" or whatever, I would just say that I am a very vulnerable person. And very secular. I do not move a few feet above the ground.... I would contrast my own "way" with what I would see as a way of understanding Grace that is grounded in a strict duality. Of a "divinity" that offers it, where terms are attached, conditions set, where the believer in effect lives a life seeking a "pass mark", however conceived. I realise that my own faith/trust has its dangers. St Paul asks "shall we sin all the more that grace may abound?" Yet I also observe the dangers of other ways and will say no more. Nevertheless, I remain in Grace as I experience it, live it, and seek to "understand" it. "Understand" in inverted commas because for me Grace, Reality-as-is, God, are interchangeable words, and each ultimately incomprehensible. I, perhaps, have more to say but will stop for now. How do others understand "grace"?
