Apprenticeship Under Grace

apprenticeshipswork

“In the school of Christ we are, as the first disciples were, always learning. There is no prescribed course that we may follow diligently and so graduate. Our learning is not directed to absorbing a body of knowledge so much as to making our own a distinctive way of life that is based on the Gospel. This is not book learning, but an apprenticeship under grace. Our call is to be attentive to the world around us and to all whom we meet, and to allow ourselves to be constantly reformed in the likeness of Christ: we are never the same: yesterday, today, or forever.” ~Michael Casey; excerpt from Fully Human Fully Alive—an Interactive Christology
