Forgive|ing: Dis-membered or Re-membered?

“Forgiveness is less a matter of forgive and forget than of forgive and re-member—re-membering in ways that bring healing. When we remember we take the broken pieces of our lives—lives that have been dis-membered by tragedy and injustice, and we re-member them into something whole. Forgetting an atrocious offense, personally or corporately, may not be possible, but all of us can and do make decisions about how we re-member what we cannot forget.”
