But I say to you: Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you.  —Matthew 5:44

Forgiveness is a heartache and difficult to achieve because strangely, the act of forgiveness not only refuses to eliminate the original wound, but actually draws us closer to its source. To approach forgiveness is to close in on the nature of the hurt itself, the only remedy being, as we approach its raw center, to reimagine our relation to it.  —David Whyte, Consolations: The Solace, Nourishment and Underlying Meaning of Everyday Words

Let us reimagine our pain, and find a way toward healing, O Lord. Amen. —The Reverend Dr. Katie Snipes Lancaster
