Why ‘Windows of Grace?”

Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.

– Paul, 1st letter to the Church in Corinth

 

One thing I’ve noticed – humans often find it difficult to see God’s gracious hand in the circumstances of daily life. I know that I often miss what God is doing in a particular moment, usually because I’m focused on my own circumstances. But if I pay attention, if I’m in tune to God’s presence and aware of how He’s working in the world in powerful ways, I can glory in His sovereignty and graciousness to us. 

 

Those moments – when God breaks through the bellowing culture around us, when He overwhelms our self-centeredness and opens our eyes to what He’s doing in the world, when the Cross and its impact are suddenly in bold focus – those are the Windows of Grace. On this website, I’ll talk about what it means to live at the crossroads of God’s Kingdom, culture,and truth. That will cover a broad spectrum of topics from the news, arts, culture, and the church. And while not meant to be overtly political, we’ll talk about issues of politics, government, and leadership, as well. I hope you’re blessed by your time here.

I love the windows of thy grace,

Through which my Lord is seen,

And long to meet my Savior’s face

Without a glass between.

 

Oh that the happy hour were come

to change my faith to sight!

I shall behold my Lord at home

In a diviner light.

 

Haste, my Beloved, and remove

These interposing days’

Then shall my passions all be love,

And all my powers be praise.
