Mr. Leland writes of his sermon: Grace is sometimes defined as “being right with God.” But what does that mean? What if grace was a force pervading the entire universe, a gentle but persistent pressure to turn back toward our divine Source whenever our personal or collective suffering causes us to turn away in pain? What if the universe was a great grace machine, a mechanism as inevitable as the law of karma perpetually working to make us whole?
