Forgiveness issues have taken up pretty much all of my blog posts in the past few weeks. The Gospel texts from Matthew that have come up in the lectionary during this time has added to this. To give the order in Matthew's Gospel for my two postings which is the reverse of when I posted them: Binding and Loosing deals with the process of admonitions and Jesus' words about binding and loosing; The Sin Against the Holy Spirit deals with the Parable of the Unforgiving Servant.
I have done a series with three parts on The Process of Forgiveness. I have given the link to the first post which will lead to the others.
Yesterday, I posted a review of an important book U.S. War-Culture, Sacrifice and Salvation by Kelly Denton-Borhaug and discussed her critiques of Girard and Mark Heim. The post is American War Sacrifice.
