As you might guess, forgiveness is a sensitive topic for those who have experienced sexual abuse by a religious leader. I have a lot of my own thoughts on this matter, but I wanted you to hear directly from survivors about their experiences and perspectives on forgiveness.
Such power in these words. I value each survivor’s right to choose to forgive or not to forgive their abuser and others involved in their horror. It takes such courage to make that decision and to choose what is best for their journey. May each if you walk in peace.
