Yesterday the technology team met (M.R. J.R. G.B. and P.P.) to focus on helping the SVP Cincinnati investee Family Nurturing Center (FNC). We are first trying to understand the processes, forms, and reports at FNC. As we discussed the referral and visitation scheduling process, J.G.(FNC employee) mentioned that she had implemented and new approach for their visitation program -- "Rules with Grace" (for things like tardiness and acceptable cancellations).
The other day M.F. asked me my definition of grace. My answer: Grace is when you get what you don't deserve. Mercy is when you don't get what you do deserve. His answer: "Grace is the power to do God's will."
We say grace each evening before dinner - in that context Grace is a short prayer. I suppose it is called Grace because it is by God's Grace we have another meal.
Say your Grace - get some Grace - give some Grace.
