Sermon on “Ungrace”- 27th May 2018


Genesis 4:1-16

In his sermon this morning Rev. Bluett further explored the concept of grace by looking at what Philip Yancy called “ungrace” or the absence of grace. He illustrated his message by reference to the Old Testament story of Cain and Abel, highlighting the point that it is more than a story about murder and that it can speak into the experience of all people.
