Lenten Reflections – Forgiving – Day 37

April 6th, 2017 by Admin

Sean Quinn We are all born into a family not of our choosing and are challenged throughout life to create strong familial bonds with people who would otherwise be strangers.  Fully adopting God’s message that we must forgive as Christ has forgiven us is necessary to ensure that these bonds are created and that family… Read More

Lenten Reflections – Forgiving – Day 36

April 5th, 2017 by Admin

Ruby M. Harmon I must admit that this “Lenten Reflection” has been one of the harder ones to pen. Perhaps because it requires a baring of the soul; a personal revealing; a for- giving of one’s self and others; an admission of our imperfections and egos. I’ve had to really ponder, “What is forgiveness”? Who… Read More

Lenten Reflections – Forgiving – Day 35

Amanda L. Levering Being a “forgiving person” is a tricky thing. I’ve always excelled at giving others forgiveness, and although this was what I believed to be part of who I inherently was, I also believed, whether conscious or subconscious, that being this way was what it meant to be “Christian.” That ideal of Christianity… Read More

Lenten Reflections – Forgiving – Day 34

April 3rd, 2017 by Admin

Susan Craig Now that I’m in my fourth decade, I have come to the realization that the person that I may need to forgive the most is MYSELF. Sure, there’s things I maybe would have done differently, but where things now stand is where they stand. For example, I didn’t get married until my third… Read More

Lenten Reflections – Forgiving – Day 33

April 2nd, 2017 by Admin

Kathryn Carroll Perhaps I’ve lived a charmed life. Perhaps I’m the queen of denial. Perhaps I’ve been hard and soft wired to never play the victim, much less be one. You see, I think that I have been in the position of granting forgiveness much more often than needing to be forgiven. Ha! And if… Read More

Lenten Reflections – Repentance – Day 32

April 1st, 2017 by Admin

Nahal Hale I have been going to a self-evolvement course called Avatar since October of 1998. My daughters Haley and Sydne were 4 and 2 at the time. I loved the course and gained so much from it that I became a trained Avatar Teacher. Not only was I helping others, but it was also… Read More

Lenten Reflections – Repentance – Day 31

Jacquelyn Rebekka Bonner Whenever I despair, I remember that the way of truth and love has always won. There may be tyrants and murderers, and for a time, they may seem invincible, but in the end, they always fail. Think of it: always. – Gandhi As a former human rights attorney, I’ve never advocated for… Read More

Lenten Reflections – Repentance – Day 30

March 30th, 2017 by Admin

Loyal Miles Poet William Carlos Williams wrote that there are “no ideas but in things”—a principle he practiced in his poetry through an emphasis on common language and the details of everyday life.  This aesthetic likely grew out of Williams’s career as a physician tasked to examining and treating the body.  One of Williams’s best-known… Read More

Lenten Reflections – Repentance – Day 29

March 29th, 2017 by Admin

Naila Meyers In the chapter “Repentance” in her Lenten study on forgiveness, Majorie J. Thompson writes, “It can feel remarkably hard to apologize to someone, even for a relatively minor offense.” But for me, it is remarkably easy to reflexively say, “I’m sorry,” even for minor offenses I didn’t commit. Countless think pieces have been… Read More

Lenten Reflections – Repentance – Day 28

March 28th, 2017 by Admin

Rebecca Grudzina Of all the steps in the process of forgiveness, I think repentance is the most out of style at the moment, at least for a bunch of 21st-century New Yorkers. When was the last time someone looked you in the face and told you to repent? Can you imagine a therapist, or a… Read More
