December 2, 2018 – Our Need for Forgiveness
The “Other” – Forgiveness is not about the “other”. It does not condone the action that caused us harm. it serves as a pathway to deeper compassion and love for ourselves and for the other. In the Book of Forgiving by Archbishop Desmond Tutu and his daughter Mpho say, “When a hurt or harm happens, we can choose to hurt back or to heal… if we choose to retaliate, or pay back, the cycle of revenge and harm continues endlessly, but if we choose to forgive, we break the cycle and we can heal, renewing or releasing the relationship.
