A Brick in the Valley


Another Awful Story Where Forgiveness Must be Unpacked

Andrew Ford pointed out this forgiveness story about a four year old who saw her own mother murdered, had her throat cut, but survived, and ended up saving her four month old sister’s life.

You can read the whole story here on CrunchyCon. 

This is the kind of situation that I address at length in my forthcoming book.   But, for now, I would point again to the column I wrote after Virginia Tech.  While, forgiveness does need to be offered, we need to read Romans 12:17-21 carefully when processing evil like this.
