The radical forgiveness in Charleston, S.C.

Although I was raised steeped in the Christian concept of forgiveness, the example set by some of the relatives of the Charleston people who were gunned down by a shooter last week stuns me.

“But I forgive you.”

I do not know how to live like that. I know it’s possible. I’ve seen it up close. But it stuns me.

  1. I honestly don’t understand how any Black or Native Americans can be Christian, considering how scripture has been used against them for 500+ years. “Radical” is right. These may be the only people in the U.S. right now who really understand and live the message.
