I believe the Lepers' Gate to be a place of messy grace, where the perfect and holy intersects with the spoiled and ordinary. Today, I read a couple of posts at kimberleysuchta.com that embody this idea quite perfectly. The first was To All the Girls Who Didn't Say No, the second is a follow up called Grace is Dangerous. Here is a woman who understands what it is to stand at the Lepers' Gate. I praise her parents for showing her the way through their example.
