There are a dozen of us who read an inspirational book each month and discuss it the following. This month we read “The Hiding Place” by Corrie Ten Boom, which is about an elderly watchmaker and his two middle-aged spinster daughters from Holland during World War II. There home was a safe place for refugees until they were captured and sent to concentration camps. One of the sisters absolutely refused to hate the abusers and even smuggled parts of a Bible in to camp and read to all who wanted to hear. She lived by the verse from Luke 23:34 which reads “Then said Jesus, ‘Father forgive them; for they know not what they do.'” She knew that people would do better if they could.
It seems everything of late continues to point to “forgiveness”. Maybe there is more to learn about this subject and I am willing to do so.
