Weekly Response to Chapter 7: Sacramental Vision
ďGodís love is absolute.Ē God loves us unconditionally and we cannot ask for more or less. God gives his love to us everywhere, every moment in our lives. God communicates to us by his self-communication which is known as ďgraceĒ. However, there is no correct definition and correct understanding about grace.

Nothing in this universe is unloved by God, or ungraced.
According to Himes, ďcovenant is rather bizarreĒ. To get the covenant, we have to scarify something. For example, Abraham and Sarah abandon their homeland to go to a completely different and far away from their homeland to live with the hope that their wishes will come true. If I understand it correctly, God doesnít need anything from us because Godís love is agape. Godís love is pure and full of beauty. God gives us his unconditional love in every moment that we exist in this world. Therefore, when we are scarifying, we are not doing a favor for ...
