When you’re hurt by someone- really wounded- you’re forced to think through the matter of forgiveness afresh. This has been the case in my own life. How ought one to forgive?

These are the kinds of questions that naturally arise.

Perhaps you could use a good reminder as well? Maybe you’re struggling with the logistics of forgiveness?
Carve out 30 minutes and give it a listen.
