Choosing to Forgive

Aired 2008-09. As a matter of deep religious conviction, the forgiving of others - for injustices, large or small, or acts of prejudice or violence – is deemed central to a healthy spiritual life. It is also important for good mental health. We heard from people who have offered forgiveness and others who have received it, and learned of the powerful affect it has on those who offer it, and those who receive it.
