Praising God for the life of beloved Spencer Perkins on the 17th anniversary of his passing into the cloud of witnesses.  A good time to revisit his final message, “Playing the Grace Card.”  There was silence in the hall at Belhaven College in 1998 when he spoke these words.  As Flannery O’Connor once wrote: “All human nature vigorously resists grace because grace changes us and the change is painful.”  Yet Spencer somehow held together both the pain and beauty of what is so amazing about grace.
