Day 2, Forgiveness

Dear People of Saint John’s,

Forgiveness is something that Christians struggle with because we are told so clearly that we must do it, and it is not easy. Sooner or later, something will happen in our lives or in the life of another or in the world that we just cannot forgive. It is helpful to realize that forgiveness is a process of grief: we grieve what might have been, what should have been. We grieve the character of others or ourselves. Forgiveness does not necessarily come quickly. But it helps us that we follow a man of sorrows, well acquainted with grief.

Today’s beautiful video comes from Paralympian Stef Reid. It can be found here.

I will be sending you over the next 10 days.  An option is to sign up for the daily communications through the Thy Kingdom Come website. It can be found here. They will send you not only the daily videos, but a written reflection, an audio resource and something for the children. There is also a Thy Kingdom Come app for your phone that you can download through your app store.

With every blessing,

Mtr. Judith
