Earlier today I learned that Brennan Manning passed yesterday. I've spent the past several hours perusing thousands of comments and posts about this man whose life message has been the grace of God.
Brennan's book, Abba's Child, has been a mirror in my hand, reflecting the truth of my own impostor and my personal journey of learning to accept God's acceptance. Through his writing and speaking Brennan shared his oh so personal journey that seemed to draw a parallel path for me and apparently thousands of other ragamuffins.
I'm grateful for Brennan's shared journey and his willingness to point to the compassion of Jesus, His scandalous grace and His forgiveness that precedes my repentance.
