As the fires of hatred burn ever hotter in the Middle East and elsewhere, the teachings of the Prince of Peace seem to many people increasingly irrelevant and otherworldly.  Yet there continue to be those for whom the teachings of Christ bring sanity to the present and hope for the future.

This outstanding six-minute video from Seth Adam Smith highlights one of the most sublime of these gifts – the healing power of forgiveness.  Watch this in a quiet moment, and give yourself a few minutes afterward to let its truly profound message sink into your mind.
