Hurt and Forgiveness

 - Niles Episcopal Church

Have you been hurt by the Church or another person?

 

At some point in time, many of us have been hurt, disrespected, ignored, emotionally abused or personally abused. even cast aside by some member of an organized religion, even clergy. as much as we might want to ignore it, we are human.

 

In response, perhaps with good intentions, people tell us to forget it, live and let live, forgive and forget and other similar phrases.  In reality, none of this advice helps very much.  Forgive and forget is not something that happens wth the snap of a finger. So what do we do?
