Dr. J. Evan Kreider (Professor Emeritus of Music, UBC) spoke on the story of Joseph in Genesis 43-45 in which he tested his half-brothers – who had sold him into slavery – to ensure that they had changed their ways. Jesus’ Parable of the Unforgiving Servant in Matt. 18:21-35 seems harsh compared to his prior admonition to forgive many times more than seven. From the Victim-Offender program in Langley and the hearings of Truth & Reconciliation Commission, we have seen how hard it is to ask for forgiveness and/or feel fully forgiven. As Bishop Thomas Wilson (1663-1755) prayed, may God forgive all our sins, including the ones hidden even from ourselves.
