In Jonathan Dee's 'A Thousand Pardons,' to ask for forgiveness is divine -- or, at least, expedient

forgiveness on Articles - To err is human, to ask for forgiveness, divine -- and, if it doesn't quite rise to the divine, then asking for forgiveness is at the very least expedient.

No Ordinary Forgiveness

forgiveness on Articles - In our story, the affair gets all the attention, but what I (Trisha) have come to realize is that I had a forgiveness issue long before the affair. I had mastered the art of unforgiveness, and felt clueless about what true forgiveness looked like.

One of the questions we always get is, "How did Trisha ever forgive Justin? How in the world could she forgive him after what he did?" It is one of the most important questions you can ask, and one of the most amazing questions we have the honor of

Easter is a time to be grateful for forgiveness

forgiveness on Articles - I never could figure out how the Easter Bunny laid all those eggs.

This column is not going to be a rant about how if you believe in Jesus Christ and the Christian holiday of Easter, then you don't dare have a chocolate bunny or colored eggs in the house.
