The process of forgiveness is a tool of empowerment for the victim. We forgive primarily to free ourselves. Our forgiveness does not automatically free our perpetrators it simply offers a type of spiritual freedom. In order for a perpetrator to ultimately be spiritually free they must also free themselves through repentance. They must accept responsibility, demonstrate true sorrow, and make amends. Reconciliation is not synonymous with forgiveness it does not happen automatically. Reconciliation is an equation, forgiveness + repentance permits reconciliation to occur. If there is no forgiveness or if there is no repentance only broken interactions can continue to occur but not genuine reconciliation. Mirthell and Rita continues to share how to eat the fruit of forgiveness and work towards reconciliation.
