Grace

7 May

Great post on grace here by Naked Pastor. I love this story that he ends with

Three Russian monks lived on a distant island. Nobody ever went there, but one day their bishop decided to visit them. When he arrived, he discovered that the monks didn’t even know the Lord’s Prayer. So he spent all of his time teaching them the prayer and then left, pleased that he’d done his pastoral work. But when his ship had left the island and was back in the open sea, he suddenly noticed the three hermits walking on the water — in fact, they were running after the ship! When they reached it, they cried, ‘Bishop, we have forgotten the prayer you taught us.’ “Three Monks on an Island” Leo Tolstoy
