The challenge and reward of forgiveness

From the October 2018 issue of The Christian Science Journal


Can we truly forgive those who cause us pain and suffering? Can we find such forgiveness in the love and mercy of our hearts? There were times I’d see acts of astonishing forgiveness, such as people offering prayers for individuals who had taken the lives of their loved ones. And while humbled by these acts of Christian love and mercy, I could never understand the depths of such forgiveness.
