In this week's scripture reading, Elijah is going to be taken away from Elisha and Elisha requests a double portion of his spirit before he goes. Elijah grants this request on the condition that Elisha watch his go, thus forcing him to accept Elijah's parting. In a Ted talk by artist Phil Hansen, he discusses losing his ability to do a certain brand of art, but regains his ability to do art and many new forms of art once he can accepts his disability that prevented him from doing his former art. This sermon explores how accepting our limitations may be the avenue to discovering God's infinite grace. http://www.ted.com/talks/phil_hansen_embrace_the_shake.html
