GLIMPSES OF GRACE

A SOULFUL DEMO

From the July 2009 issue of The Christian Science Journal


ONE SUMMER EVENING at Pacific Beach as I paddled back into the surf to catch another wave, I noticed a fellow surfer riding toward me in a classic soul-arch stance: upright, back arched, chest out, hips forward, like a matador when a bull makes a pass. The surfer's technique was unlabored and elegant, like nothing I'd ever seen before.
