Bishop Beckwith's Blog: Signs of God's Grace

The Rt. Rev. Mark M. Beckwith
10th Bishop of Newark (2007-2018)

Grace happens. All the time. Grace is God's gift to us. The signs of God's grace are abundant. Some are dramatic. Many at first glance seem mundane. All are potentially life transforming.

God created us, but God was not – and is not, finished with creating. God keeps showing up. God is very much at work. Our job as God's creatures, is to pay attention to God's grace. And to join with God in God's work.
