Giving Costly Gifts

Having just written a book on forgiveness, I guess I've been thinking a little bit about what forgiveness has to do with the Christmas season. A few of my musings appeared on Common Grounds Online the other day. I thought I'd share.

Here's the quote that I haven't been able to get out of my head since I wrote As We Forgive: Stories of Reconciliation from Rwanda. It's by Miroslav Volf and is the backdrop to my recent musings:

Under the foot of the cross we learn, however, that in a world of irreversible deeds and partisan judgments, redemption from the passive suffering of victimization cannot happen without the active suffering of forgiveness.
