This Sunday Program with Rev. Suzette Wehunt, Senior Minister "Courage Isn't Casual"
Forgiveness is not
weakness, but is one of the most courageous things we as humans are called to do. Forgiveness is not weak, passive or
for the faint of heart, it calls us to know the depth of our own courage and trust in a our own relationship with
the God of our understanding. This kind of strength can be witnessed in people who have been able to forgive in
situations most of us cannot imagine living through. The forgiveness demonstrated by the family and friends of the recent
shootings in Charleston, South Carolina are an example of this kind of courage. They knew clearly that their God
was much bigger than the incident and that change would come only through love, not the perpetuation of more violence,
even in that was simply holding hatred in their hearts. I always think about Immaculee Ilibagiza, who lived in a
small bathroom for 91 days with 7 other women in the middle of RwandanHolocaust and came through the experience having discovered
God and able to forgive those who slaughtered her family. When I hear stories like these, the things in my life
that i must forgive seem tame and manageable in comparison. And yet I know that what the Course in Miracles says is correct,
“All expressions of love are maximal.” Everything I forgive, however small, leads me to my unity with
