EXCERPT:

I come into the room
ready to apologize,
ready to make amends,
ready to tell you all the things I’ll do to make it better,
but you put your arms around me.

Grace is the ocean
that softens the edges.
Grace is rain in the desert—
you’re not sure whether to
laugh, cry, or dance.
Grace is a miracle,
all by itself.
In a scorekeeping world,
grace doesn’t play by the rules.

—Rev. Sarah (Are) Speed, excerpt from “What Doesn’t Play by the Rules”
