I like this. Good work. Thank you.
Very challenging and inspiring. You've shown that it is possible to trust and obey God in even the most extreme situations. What I'd love to know is what enabled that community to react to such a terrible event in the way that they did - and what does that reveal to the rest of the world about trusting God and remaining obedient? That said, this piece certainly challenged me. Great job!
Thank you for the powerful reminder of the importance of forgiveness!
You have stitched together some helpful reminders of forgiveness necessary to trust and obey.

You wrote "We forgave him then and we do it again, every day. Every. Single. Day."

And

The pain wasn't over and they may bear the consequences of another's sin for the rest of their lives, but daily they choose to trust, and yet again, obey.

POWERFUL reminder for me to daily cast my burdens at the foot of the cross and ask God's help to forgive.
Congratulations on ranking 12 overall! Happy Dance!
