In case you’ve missed it, there is a fantastic article on Forgiveness by Christine Scheller in the October issue of Christianity Today.
Here’s one quote:
Living a life of holiness and learning the ways of God sometimes mean letting go of our need for justice and instead embracing a world that groans in anticipation of the day when it, and we, will be redeemed.
I commend the whole article to you. We need more serious thinking about this business of leaning into our identity as a “forgiveness” people. It demands the sort of honest story telling, and living into the Christian story, in which Scheller engages in this article.
