The Three Faces of Forgiveness
By Scarlett Stough
We seek the face of God for his forgiveness to restore relationship with him
so we might live and not die.
We seek the face of another to forgive and to be forgiven offenses with each other
so we might restore peace and unity.
We look at the face in the mirror with acceptance of forgiveness
so we might live a new life with a clear conscience making a fresh start
free of guilt and shame.
