Surprising God, Surprising Grace

King David stabilized the kingdom and is enjoying peace. With time for reflection, it does not escape his notice that the tent containing God’s house pales in comparison to his own. Driven by the evident disparity, David hatches a plan with his friend to tip the scales the other way. He is going to build God an amazing house. But God has other plans, and in saying "No" to David, He sets in motion an intimate and surprising human/divine conversation. It is a conversation revealing more grace than David could ever have imagined, a grace that reaches down to us.
