Grace

I've always loved this quote about Grace.

The grace of God is "God's transforming disposition towards the whole world." That is, divine grace is expressed as a creative will for dynamic life and goodness, full of ongoing possibilities for transformation and renewal. God bestows on us the risky gift of freedom and responsibility. Grace is a risk God takes in the freedom of divine love, a risk extended for the sake of transformation, for greater wholeness, for fullness of life.

.It's by Walter Brueggemann, as quoted in Companions in Christ series on Grace.
