Quirks of grace: When strange things happen

Ministry is befuddling, either in the way the people we serve are just so very strange, or in the way the grace of God catches us off guard—or both.

But a stunning host of others latch on to spiritual oddities, untested (and untestable) private experiences and even silliness.
