Voices of Faith: Why do people attribute their good luck to the grace of God?

The Rev. Betty Hanna-Witherspoon, pastor of the Ebenezer AME Church, Kansas City, Mo.: A definition of grace is “an undeserved favor or gift; the undeserved forgiveness, kindness and mercy that God gives us.” African Methodists turn to Romans 3:23-24 to understand the free gift of salvation as grace, “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God and are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.”
