More on Forgiveness

I met Father Richard Rohr, a Franciscan, a few years ago. He has been offering some thoughts on forgiveness. Here is something that hit the Inbox this morning,

Vengeance seems so logical, but it doesn’t really work: It doesn’t advance human history or us. The wonder of the resurrection stories in the Gospels is that Jesus has no punitive attitude toward the authorities or his cowardly followers; and the followers themselves never call for any kind of holy war against those who killed their leader. Something new has clearly transpired in history. This is not the common and expected story line. All Jesus does is breathe forgiveness (John 20:22).

Jesus invites people into his life and his way. He takes what is and points to the new way of the Kingdom of God.  Come see what this journey is all about!

One way to think about the mission of Jesus - He calls into question the way things are and points to the way things may be in the Kingdom of God.
