Grace

The River of Grace

“There are audacious and revolutionary people who live outside the boundaries because there are no boundaries when it comes to grace. They think new thoughts, embrace the now, and live on the cutting edge of the immeasurable, non-calculated depth of the river of grace which is always overflowing its banks.”

– Jeff Blake, Homecoming

Tears And Laughter

“There may be a thin line between tears and laughter. They are connected. Tears may end as laughter begins or just the opposite may occur. They can even be simultaneous like sunshine and rain.”

– Jeff Grace, Homestretch: This Journey on Grace Street

I believe when I took this photo last November it was the last time I would be in the same room as Jeff. I think deep down I knew it when he left. I think he did too. We all hugged and had lots of laughs during his brief visit. You will always be loved and remembered Jeff. Rest in Peace brother. Grace will carry all of us home. See you on the other side.

The Fuel

“Your anger – about matters that you think are personal and yours alone – is, in fact, the fuel for the machines of war. Your kindness towards strangers on the street is, in fact, the grace and serenity that brings millions of people together to work towards the common good of all.”

― Alaric Hutchinson, Living Peace

Liberation

“Henri Nouwen’s Wonded Healer is a classic writing in spirituality. Nouwen understood the well-known Australian Aboriginal activists quote, “If you have come to help me, you are wasting your time. But if you have come because your liberation is bound up with mine, then let us work together.”

Grace is understanding our oneness with all people.
