Is love like the ocean?

One week ago tonight, we had our Grace Kindergarten graduation program, with standing room only as usual.  One of the songs the children sang (“Peace Like a River”) contains these words, “I’ve got love like the ocean.  I’ve got love like the ocean.  I’ve got love like the ocean in my soul!”  This week, I’m on vacation at the beach in North Carolina and able to commune with the ocean at any or every moment and to reflect on that vast, roaring, unstoppable energy of love.  I’m sure, from my own up-close experience, that God’s love is just that powerful and that limitless.  Hope you know that, too!


About aliceatgrace

I'm the Rector at Grace Episcopal Church in Hopkinsville, KY. When I came here in August, 2011, I discovered that we have a great asset that was being under-utilized, to say the least. We have a beautiful Chartres labyrinth that was dedicated four years ago, and I decided that I would do all I could to promote the use of it. It's now just post-Easter of 2012, and, about a month ago, it occurred to me that our labyrinth is a symbol of what the future of this church is intended to be. We are people on an ongoing spiritual journey together. We like to ask questions, and we don't always have to have the answers. We are confident that God is leading us into deeper relationships--both with God and with the world around us. We invite you to "come walk with us."
