Jason Locy shares some of the “narratives” that have made him who he is today and asks the question: “Who am I apart from my history and the roles I have played?”. Jason wrestles with those narratives and the need for forgiveness. He also explores the difficulty in forgiving and why it can be so hard, seem so foreign and feel so painful. In looking back on his experiences in trying to forgive, Jason identifies and explores three lessons he has learned:
- You have to begin to work at forgiveness and then wait for God to take over.
- Forgiveness is ongoing–Grace serves as the reminder of our past not the pain.
We love because God first loved us, and in that love we find forgiveness, which allows us to forgive.
