Grace abounds in the midst of the pain

Jesus was always showing up and hanging out in unexpected places with unexpected people. He did that last Saturday. He showed up in the home of a lesbian couple in a small town in rural Minnesota. He showed up as a life passed from here to eternity. He showed up in the midst of an unlikely gathering of people. Family members, friends and co-workers, some church goers, some not. He pour His grace out through and to each one there. In the midst of grief and loss a great sense of peace and love filled the house. We cried, we laughed, we hugged, we prayed, we shared stories and then we made brownies and ice cream. And there I was, this conservative born again, spirit-filled Christian in the middle of it. God is doing amazing things in these days.
