We are never more like Jesus than when we suffer an injustice, and yet freely forgive those who have wronged us. The wife and family of pastor Fred Winters suffered a grave injustice when a stranger walked into their church and fatally shot Pastor Winters during the early morning worship service. And yet Cindy Winters responded with grace and compassion.
My wife saw this news segment the morning it aired, and was deeply moved by it. I’ll have more to say about forgiveness later; for now, there’s nothing at all that I can add to Cindy Winters’ words.
