Forgiven and Forgiving


Some wrongs can never be righted. They can only be forgiven.

Ideas and claims of justice, equity, and even fairness are brought into the fray: Who forgives who? And for what are we forgiven? Is there a practical extent to forgiveness, or a line that cannot be crossed, where forgiveness has no merit?

Clair Sams helps us to understand that forgiveness is fundamental to our understanding of justice, as well as foundational to our ability to embrace mercy.

The impact of forgiveness is far more profound than “allowing” for a misstep, or extending pardon to an otherwise unworthy recalcitrant soul. It forever places us in the redemption cycle for the salvation of those closest to us in acquaintance, if not in fellowship.
