In Their Honor

Something I’ve been reflecting on since the Charleston shootings: there are some who hold on to petty gripes, grudges and grievances against their own friends or family members for years, yet the people of this Church came together and decided to forgive a murderer. As San Francisco Chronicle columnist Jon Carroll wrote in a recent column: “Because their faith told them that was what you did. You rose above. You shone your light so all could follow. And love won again.” May their shining example inspire all of us to let go of old slights, snubs and injuries so that love continues to triumph in all our hearts.
