Out of Grace

new year's day 011

When God’s Son took on flesh,

He truly and bodily took on,

out of pure grace,

our being, our nature, ourselves.

(Dietrich Bonhoeffer)

About Heidi Viars

“If you look for truth, you may find comfort in the end; if you look for comfort you will not get either comfort or truth ...” ― C.S. Lewis ..... In my pursuit of self, I found utter darkness. In my pursuit of truth, I found Jesus, who dispelled the darkness by His forgiveness. Now I follow Him and try to understand Him better. I am a wife, mother of 6, blogger and love taking photographs of sunrises.

  1. I read Bonhoeffer’s “The Cost of Discipleship” many years ago. I thought it was good then, and I still think it is worth reading today. Also recommended: “Ethics”, “Life Together”, and “Letters and Papers from Prison”.
