Forgiveness starts right away, but sometimes takes time to come to fruition. Our forgiveness and love must be expressed continually. We can’t say “it’s all good” with words unless we follow up with deeds. . . . Getting involved doesn’t mean being contaminated by politics. It means spreading the love of Christ in the midst of desperation. It means offering the hope that Jesus is present in every situation.
