I follow a blog by an Anglican minister ,Daniel Owen, who lives in Ireland.
In his Good Friday sermon just gone he starts off with an amazing story of a man being pardoned by his victim's mother.
Daniel's sermon you can read in full if you follow the link below.
Also you will find the link on the story just mentioned.
It is wonderful the young man was pardoned but how sad that so called "blood" money was required to obtain his release and forgiveness.
Each of us in this age of Grace have the wonderful privilege that Jesus offers us forgiveness of Sin, eternal life and so much more through his death and resurrection and the shedding of His blood.
