March 9:  Forgiveness Is A Lovely Idea Until We Have Something to Forgive
Often the hardest person to forgive is ourselves. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. said it well:  “Forgiveness is not an occasional act; it is a permanent attitude.” Henri Nouwen sees forgiveness as “the cement of community life.” As we deepen our Lenten practices, we will explore forgiveness and its key role in our personal and community lives.
