Forgiveness: central to Christian life

From the April 2014 issue of The Christian Science Journal


Who hasn’t been in a position to forgive? It may be in a circumstance as everyday as when someone has cut us off in traffic and we’re tempted to react angrily, or when we’ve been nursing a grudge as a result of a perceived personal betrayal, or have felt victimized by an act of violence. Whatever the situation, our willingness to forgive can be a springboard to spiritual growth and healing, and to more spiritual views of life.
