Grace is God as heart surgeon, cracking open your chest, removing your heart—poisoned as it is with pride and pain—and replacing it with his own. Rather than tell you to change, he creates the change. Do you clean up so he can accept you? No, he accepts you and begins cleaning you up. His dream isn’t just to get you into heaven but to get heaven into you. Max Lucado

Join us March 28th, 7:00 – 8:30 (come at 6:45 for casual visiting) in the fireside room. Contact the Swan Lake office to sign up. Workbook is $15. Any questions contact Mendy Lange or Sherry Smith.
