More than a beautiful Human

When you spend two hours talking with someone who regularly says "I feel like sticking him ........" while at the same time making an underarm stabbing motion and contorting a face to fit ............... I think of the "F WORD" project which was at Greenbelt.

The F is for forgiveness and it is not a Christian project but, of course, a Christian principle. It was a display of photographs and quotations of people who had been treated so terrible that it brought tears to the eyes and a stillness that filled the space at Greenbelt so powerfully.

Mental abuse
and more .............

And yet they had decided to forgive another because of various principles but also to release themselves from bitterness and a massive weight around them like chains.

There is a contrast between the stabbing and the forgiveness.
Also between people who have never received the words;
"Forgive them because they don't know what they are doing ...."
The words of a
as he hung on the cross .............
