In our generation we are experiencing a heartbreaking lack of forgiveness. The biological, emotional, psychological, and spiritual implications of forgiveness make it a virtuous trait that is absolutely indispensable. Perhaps we are experiencing this deficit as a society because we have overlooked the importance of forgiveness by reducing it to platitudes. Maybe there is something truly fundamental about this virtue that, if we bother to look into it, will aid us greatly in reclaiming, at least in some part, the unity that we appear to have lost.
Join us as we investigate the importance and mechanics of forgiveness. How have we all been touched by the pain of unforgiveness from others? Are we conscious of our own lack of forgiveness? What prevents us from forgiving? What ramifications does not prioritizing forgiveness entail?
