I am not asked to make a sacrifice to find the mercy and peace of God.
The mercy and peace of God are unconditional. Nothing is necessary to gain them. Mercy and peace are freely given and we are asked to pass it on.
In Alcoholics Anonymous, we are encouraged, in step eleven, to improve our conscious contact with God as we understand God so that we may experience mercy and peace.
In Unitarian Universalism we join together to accept one another and encourage each other's spiritual growth and development. This involves extending the unconditional love of God which is the foundational belief of our Universalism.
Today, in lesson #343 it is suggested to us to remind ourselves that no sacrifice is necessary to recognize, acknowledge, and accept the mercy and peace of God. Amen, alleluia, thank You.
