This is the brilliance of grace: it welcomes our darkness into the light and does nothing to it, knowing that it doesn’t have to, because darkness thrives on hiddenness, and it’s at the mercy of the light.
Light drives out darkness, not the other way around.
When we no longer have to push our darkness back down beneath layers of shame our darkness doesn’t stand a chance.
-Dr Kelly Flanagan
I thoroughly enjoyed reading Dr. Flanagan on Why I Don’t Believe in Grace Anymore (It’s a short article – and please don’t jump to conclusions until you have read the whole thing.)
