16-06-19: Amazing Grace

June 19, 2016

Celeste Rogers and Julie Slayton Frank

How do you feel when you sing or hear the hymn, "Amazing Grace?" Can you embrace the words, or do you find yourself wanting to change them? What is grace anyway, and what can it mean for the atheist, the pagan, the Humanist, the theologically-hybrid Unitarian Universalist? We will explore these issues and share our personal stories of grace.
