Our series on the Desert Southwest Conference’s Vision Statement continues:
God calls us to be
A Courageous Church:
Loving like Jesus,
Acting for Justice,
United in hope.
In the United Methodist Church, we talk a lot about justice, mercy, and grace. Here is how it was explained to me long ago:
Justice is getting what you deserve,
Mercy is NOT getting what you deserve, and
Grace is getting something you did not deserve.
