Grace

Sitting here surrounded by theologians,

Barth, Tillich, Moltmann, Bonhoffer all ghosts.

There is Rowen looking like Gandalf,

there is Wright, holding the fort.

I really do try to read them,

I really do try to understand.

The meaning of grace,

actual grace, cooperating grace,

efficacious grace, irresistible grace,

prevenient grace, sanctifying grace,

sufficient grace, all kinds of grace.

No wonder we are all a muddle,

we just don’t get God’s grace.
