I watched a movie online today that was linked to the Truth and Reconciliation Process of Liberia. The speakers were speaking from a Christian context, which is a little hard for me to take at times because of the connection between Christianity and adoption, plus the fact that I was raised in the Missouri Synod Lutheran Church — but I tried to get over it and tried to get something out of it. So what I got out of it was the statement, “Forgiveness is not an event, but a process.”
OK! I buy that!
So you can watch Forgiveness as a Spiritual Journey, which I was interested in because I am trying to figure out how to be more forgiving, for my own benefit, (starting out with the small things and working up to the big things, hopefully).
I also related to Pastoral Care & Counsel-Special Considerations for Working With Immigrants and Refugees, especially what Katherine Luci had to say about mental health issues. I relate to that because of being a kind of immigrant in Korea and also my past history of trauma both in the U.S. and Korea.
