Undaunted Grace

 
The earth turns, seasons turn,
and we turn homeward, seeking
a place we’ve never been.

Can anything keep us away from God?
Trouble? Hard times? Hatred?
Hunger? Homelessness? Bullying threats?

For surely, nothing—life or death,
angel or demon, present or future,
high or deep, without or within—
nothing can get between us
and God’s radical love.

In God’s undaunted grace,
there is no place we can run to
and not be met by love.

From undaunted grace, we make for each other
a safe place, a space of authenticity.
In God’s fullness, completeness, and beauty,
there’s a place for each of us to be found.
