Our Bible study this fall is "Ridiculous Grace"

To many people the word ridiculous conjures thoughts like "absurd, silly, unreasonable or preposterous." For example, "What a ridiculous idea (or decision, job, costume, etc.)." To younger generations, ridiculous has come to mean something different: "awesome, extravagant or excessive." For example, "What a ridiculous car (or wedding, house, new bike, etc.)." Curiously, both understandings of ridiculous fit Jesus as a Grace-Giver. His grace was at times preposterous and even absurd - totally undeserved. Every time it was extravagant and excessive. Every lesson in this study reveals His Ridiculous Grace.
