what matters

Spirituality is about all of these aspects of life: what has touched us, what has formed us, what has made sense to us, what has drawn us, what has repulsed us, what makes no sense to us, etc.

Grace in Christianity is the free and unmerited favour of God as manifested in the salvation of sinners and the
