Continuing to Receive “Grace”

My dream, featuring the hymn "Amazing Grace," set the stage for a "Synchronicity Sunday."

If you checked out my previous post, which I shared a dream that featured the hymn “Amazing Grace,” here’s what happened later…

I was asked to assist the minister in the service today, in the role of platform minister. In the past, I performed this duty quite regularly; these days, though, I’m usually in another part of the building fulfilling other duties and responsibilities when services take place.

The Universe arranged for me to be in the sanctuary to hear the church pianist play the song from my dream: "Amazing Grace."

As I’m sitting in my chair, waiting to take the podium and begin today’s service with our call to worship song, the church pianist is playing music, leading to my intro. I hear the song he’s playing: Yep—“Amazing Grace.”

Later today, I had plans to meet up with a friend (which is one of the meanings of the 3 of Cups, the card that shared the spotlight with the dream), but while at church, I received a text from him, stating he had a family emergency and would like to reschedule.

I suddenly found myself with free time, so I considered my options, and decided to go home and work on some social media stuff (dubbing today “Social Media Sunday”).

Change of plans with a friend made it possible for me to be able to hear Oprah ask author Sue Monk Kidd a pivotal question.

I arrive home, and I turn on the TV. Being Sunday, I had the TV set to OWN (Oprah Winfrey Network), which airs “Super Soul Sunday,” one of my favorite shows. I stand in front of the TV to see Oprah talking with author Sue Monk Kidd. At that very moment, Oprah turns to Sue and asks, “What is grace?”

I stand there with my mouth open.

For me, this is no longer “Super Soul Sunday.” It’s not even “Social Media Sunday,” at this point. Instead, this day has become “Synchronicity Sunday.”

How else could I explain fulfilling a duty at church that I rarely do, so I can have the “opportunity” to hear a song I was singing and clapping to in a dream a few short hours ago?

How else could I explain, that, if it weren’t for my friend’s change of plans, as well as my decision to go home, that I would arrive just at that point in Oprah’s conversation with Sue Monk Kidd?

For me, there’s no other way.

The Universe really arranged things for me to receive “grace” today.
