Grace may seem a bit ethereal at times—like a ballet dancer crossing the stage so lightly that the image takes on a dreamlike quality. But the grace that the writers in this week's issue focus on could perhaps be described as down-to-earth grace. It's seen in the guidance that saves a mother from anxiety over her child's safety, and in the divine power that helps another comfort her son and that removes the pain from his injured hands. This is the grace that uplifts the hearts and lives of those bearing heavy burdens. Grace in the here and now.

The concept of God's powerful and ever-present help is carried forward by two examples. In "Never ever out God's care," the author tells of protection when he was falling from the roof of his factory and how the insights from this experience solved a business problem with which he was struggling. Under "Workplace," you'll find "Spiritual insights and structural engineering," which describes how prayer brought inspired solutions not just to the writer's academic studies but to an engineering project that seemed intractable.
