You're walking down the street and meet one you haven't seen in years. It goes like this... You: "Hey bud..., how ya' been doin'? Ain't seen you in a coons age!" Them? "Well..., ain't you a sight for sore eyes!" "Been doin' pretty good..., and you?" ...and so it goes. When Paul addressed those in receipt of his letters his greeting included..., "Grace be unto you..." and "Peace". Grace. Grace includes many applications but basically, Grace is that loving kindness our Lord has extended to us who are otherwise not deserving. Those of us which are considered Saints in His eyes. Peace. The peace of God that is beyond our comprehension. So, what's your thoughts on greeting other Saints with such as..., "Grace be unto you..." vice, "Hey Bud..., long time no see."
