“Have you ever bent over a baby and made a fool of yourself to get a smile? Have you ever found your spouse across the room at a party and winked? Have you ever held an old, wrinkled hand and listened to the stories? Have you ever read a newspaper story that made you tear up and want to pray? Have you ever been so lost in conversation that you realize you closed the restaurant down? If you answered no, chances are you are already dead. Savor the grace of this life.”—Rev. M. Craig Barnes, president of Princeton Theological Seminary, quoted in Mary Lee Talbot, “Morning Worship: ‘Savor the Grace in Life,’” The Chautauquan Daily, August 6, 2014
