Forgiveness: Why it Matters



It’s almost Easter, and as the old saying goes: Time flies when you’re observing Lent, a period when Christians reflect on their misdeeds and pardon their wrongdoers. In honor of the season, this hour of All Sides will explore the virtue of forgiveness. We’ll discuss why it can feel so good to hold a grudge, but how forgiveness makes us stronger–and how we can forgive the unforgivable.
