Forgiveness Hidden and Revealed... the Surprise of Grace

In one column I recounted the surprise of Robert Downey, Jr. and Mel Gibson and a graceful moment in which forgiveness figured prominently.  Just recently I read of another, less surprising, more Christian.  This was the story told by Tim Goeglein and his own fall from grace (within the White House) and the forgiveness extended to him by the Chief of Staff and then President George. H. Bush.  In so many of these small stories, I have grown to appreciate the manner in which Pres. Bush lived the faith he professes while occupying the greatest seat of power in the world.  It is an intoxicating place in which power and pride have gone before the fall of many and here we see an action of grace at work in that same house.

I pass on the story for you to read here.
