The joy of forgiveness

Does anyone want to be sad? There are some people who give that impression, but no one really wants to be miserable. We all want to be happy. David, King of Israel, did too. A king has no shortage of wealth, servants or any other means to make him happy. David could have called…

My clearest memories of childhood are images of violence and fear. With my sisters, I watched helplessly as my father, in his drunken rages, beat and abused my mother. I remember when this became too much for me and, as an eight year old, I rushed at my father crying, 'Stop it, stop it…
