Forgiveness by Jenny Thompson-Richards
It has long struck me that the experience of externalising interactions seemed similar to the experience of forgiveness. This prompted me to explore how an externalising worldview relates to the Christian understanding of forgiveness. I draw on Alan Jenkins’ book “Invitations to Responsibility (1990) in which he outlines his work with men who abuse and my own work with woman who have experienced abuse and with men who abuse. I have chosen this because it is clearly an area in which problems and sin do coincide.
