About The Common Grace Project

“For he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.” -Jesus of Nazareth

“God gives out good gifts of wisdom, talent, beauty, and skill 'graciously'--that is, in a completely unmerited way. He casts them across all humanity, regardless of religious conviction, race, gender, or any other attribute to enrich, brighten, and preserve the world.”

-Timothy Keller

Grace for all people

Grace is often sanitized and reserved for religious folks and inside the walls of the church. I’ve come to believe grace is for all. God gives grace even when we don’t see it, understand it, or recieve it. Grace is pulsing through every corner of our good world.

Will we have eyes to see it?

The Common Grace Project is about connecting grace in all its forms to everyday life. Sometimes grace is found inside faith communities, or in Christian practice, sometimes in a piece of art, a great novel, movie, or in an organization fighting poverty.

Grace is a gift and it comes in all shapes and sizes. This newsletter is an attempt to share the places and spaces where I see grace in every corner of culture, and its absence.
