For Pastors: Forgiveness or Justice?
"Forgiveness or Justice" cartoon by David Hayward
The story of the church giving a standing ovation
because their pastor who sexually assaulted an underage girl asked forgiveness is just appalling. Not unbelievable. Because it happens a lot!
Like this cartoon suggests, it's possible for forgiveness and justice to stand together. It doesn't just mean forgiveness for
the powerful and justice to
the powerless. It means forgiveness and justice for all!
