We claim to want fairness, or at least we want fairness in a way that benefits us. Deep down, however, the truth is that we don’t really want fairness; we want mercy. At least that is what we want from God. At the same time, we want to deal fairly and be dealt with fairly as we live and work in the world. So, our theme can be aspirational in terms of how we relate to those around us – as long as we don’t get too whiny! At the same time, as we worship, we give thanks and praise to God who has gone beyond fair in offering salvation and grace to all of us sinners and gave us a way where there was no way. God loves us even when we haven’t been all that loveable. When we are truly seeking the face of God, we go beyond fair and move into grace manifested in love in all our relationships.
