Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong

Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong

"Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong". This is an epithet attributed to Mahatma Gandhi, said of Nelson Mandela, and central to a Christian understanding of strength as the power of love rather than a love for the kind of power that overwhelms.

It is also a theme for an evening of 'Poetry, Meditation and Music for Lent' with the London Youth Gospel Choir, Zack Polanski, Jorge Morales and Patricia Pons and Juan Calle taking place on Friday March 28th 2014, 7.30pm, at Harecourt, 120 St Paul’s Road London N1 2LR

Harecourt is a United Reformed Church and the minister there is Ekklesia associate the Rev Vaughan Jones, who has spent many years working with displaced people in London and worldwide.
