FORGIVENESS, ALSO

If repentance is a constant in relationship, emotional and spiritual health (see previous post), so is forgiveness. Forgiveness, as I write of it here and now, is the recognition, readiness, and willingness to forgive others and institutions amid carelessness, insensitivities, hurts, sleights, injustices, ignorance, aggression, and/or violence.

Like authentic repentance, forgving is ultimately accomplished through grace.
