December is a month when both the religious and secular among us enjoy family time, take a break from work, come together with friends and share good things.


It is a time when we extend grace to one another and let our guards down. We say hi to one another, we wish happy holidays, Happy Hanukkah and Merry Christmas. We are for a moment – lighter.


It would serve us well to think about the meaning of grace during this season when we have a moment to reflect on what each of us can do to strengthen our social fabric.


Some may think of grace as a simple elegance or refinement of behavior finesse.


Some define grace as the free and unmerited favor of God.


For all of us, grace can be a way to honor another by one’s presence, to favor or show dignity to others, not in spite of their differences but because of them.


You may know that as a species we are genetically 99.9% the same. This week, let’s put aside the 0.1% and look for what connects and unites us.


Thank you for reading my blog this year. I wish you a time of reflection and peace this week.
