Irenic Thoughts

Irenic. The word means peaceful. This web log (or blog) exists to create an ongoing, and hopefully peaceful, series of comments on the life of King of Peace Episcopal Church. This is not a closed community. You are highly encouraged to comment on any post or to send your own posts.



Forgiveness is an unnatural act.
—Philip Yancey

Forgiveness is not just an occasional act:
it is a permanent attitude.
—Martin Luther King, Jr.

Forgiveness is the answer to the child's dream of a miracle by which what is broken is made whole again, what is soiled is made clean again.
—Dag Hammarskjold

Forgiveness is the final form of love.
—Reinhold Niebuhr

Forgiveness is the giving, and so the receiving, of life.
—George MacDonald

Forgiveness is the remission of sins. For it is by this that what has been lost, and was found, is saved from being lost again.
—Saint Augustine of Hippo

For if you forgive others for their transgressions, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.
—Jesus Christ in Matthew 6:14

    Please take the time out of your busy day and look up the name Louis Zamperini. He wrote a book called DEVIL AT MY HEELS, have you heard of it? My Sunday School class read it and discussed it using the theme of forgiveness. (He was a Japanese POW in WW2 and later met his captives face to face and FORGAVE them.)
