Good News Indeed

The seemingly incessant attempt to
partition off grace,
as if somehow it needs a protector
or a self appointed gate keeper,
to keep the worthy in
and the unclean out,
is nothing more than
narcissism and
delusions of grandeur
disguised as personal piety
and religious rightness.
Grace is only grace
if it is available to all -
no matter who,
no matter what,
no matter where.
And that is good news,
  — bshivers
