I had the privilege to speak to Spring Arbor University students in their chapel service. The topic was grace. I wanted them to remember that no matter what they do, they’re never too far from the Father’s love and heartbeat. It was probably the least organized talk. I stayed at the heart. Could’ve done a better job. But grateful for opportunity to remind students that they are beloved. I ended with one of my favorite quotes ever from Brennan:
That in the end, my sin will never outweigh God’s love. That the Prodigal can never outrun the Father. That I am not measured by the good I do but by the grace I accept. That being lost is a prerequisite to being found. That living a life of faith is not lived in the light, it is discovered in the dark. That not being a saint here on earth will not necessarily keep you from being in that number when the march begins.
