If we’re committed to the notion that God doesn’t save only each of us but all of us, and that God is pulling us into a community together, and if we’re further committed to the notion that God acts out of love for us and works through us to communicate that love to one another—then even the most difficult encounters, the most nerve-wracking news are framed in grace. When we enter into our relationships assured that God is pro-me and consequently pro-us, we can more confidently remember that not even we, ultimately, can be against us.
