The word Grace acts a bit like a prism. It gathers up and then spills out all the colors of light that are the refractions of God's love for us. In Grace Rises, her fourth book of meditations and prayers, Juanita Ryan offers us glimpses of grace. Someimes grace rushes in like light, sliding under the door. Sometimes grace finds us in moments of spiritual poverty. Sometimes grace teaches us to weep, to laugh, to let go, to stand in awe, to reach out. Grace rises, Juanita writes, like a full moon over our lives. If you are looking for glimpses of light from the full moon of God's grace-drawing us together in community, healing what is wounded, teaching us forgiveness, awakening our compassion and our passion-this collection is for you.
