Stephen Freeman: “Speak kindness. Be generous. Set your prisoners free.”

“Our nation will not know healing in any measure through the work of mutual shaming. There is no life to be found in it, only anger, depression and the continued darkening of our culture. Only light gives life. Creating is difficult, careful work. Destruction is easy – child’s play. Forgive those who do not deserve it. Forgive before they ask. Forgive as though it is Judgment Day and your own soul will be held to the scrutiny you extend to others. It’s ok. You won’t lose anything through forgiveness. In holding onto the shame of others you will only increase your own.
Speak kindness. Be generous. Set your prisoners free. No more shame slaves.”

Fr.Stephen Freeman
