I want to tell you a story.

When I was at university, I went to the Christian Union meetings every Thursday. Two years ago, valentines day fell on a Thursday, and while we didn’t exactly have a theme to the evening, it was a bit special.

Our CU had about 200 people on the books, and an average attendance of maybe 150. Towards the end of the meeting we sang “How deep the Father’s love for us“, which is a beautiful song [hymn?] in itself.

Normally, at the end of a song we’d segue into another song, or sit and wait for someone to speak, but before any of that could happen, all the lights went out, and the following video came on…. no one sat down, we all stood, silently watching this video. I got goosebumps, and still do every time I watch it.

We were shown it in prayers at work today, and it reminded me of that evening, and I wanted to share this with you. A moving illustration of Grace.

And lyrics can be found here (youtube) or here (text)

Walk With the Wise

Grace – it keeps Jesus nearer than we think.
