Join us as we explore the Church and the Means of Grace. In these pages you will learn what different people mean by “means of grace” and “sacraments”, things we all hold in common and things we disagree on. You will find non-fiction, poetry, reflections, puzzles, book and media recommendations, and a look at how prayer shows up in a manga series. We can’t wait to hear what you think!
