I weep for the broken, messed-up world we live in. But then I weep at the power of grace. There’s Jesus, lifting the head of a woman of the night and sending her away into the light. There’s Jesus in a crowd, healing a woman desperately trying to cover the shame. There’s Jesus at the well, transforming a woman tossed aside by multiple men. Weeping is no longer enough. Now, I pray.
