GETTING HEARD - PENTECOST AND THE GOSPEL IN EVERY LANGUAGE
MARY GAUTHIER and MARTYN JOSEPH in FITZROY

GRÁ

Gra

Grá

Irish word 

For the English word

Love

But much more robust

Like onomatopoeia

A thump in the chest

A thud in the heart

Grá is who we are

Not what we think

Or define, or write down or preach

It fires what we do

It points to where we go

It gathers who we are with

A veto on everything else

Half the letters of grace

With twice the literary impact

The quintessence of who we are

What is our grá?
