Grace is God’s un-merited, unconditional love and acceptance freely given to all. Yet as Christians, saved by grace, often we are unable or unwilling to extend that grace to others. This is a course designed to help you learn about grace while exploring the practices that help you nurture and watch over one another in love. Participating in the means of grace (works of mercy and works of piety), you are better able to help others understand the power of grace so that they grow in love of God and neighbor.If you have questions, please email the instructor.
