The Taser's Edge


Repentance over Reason (a truly Lenten thought)

“In this way we differ from all animals.  It is not our capacity to think that makes us different, but our capacity to repent, and to forgive.  Only humans can perform that most unnatural act, and by doing so only they can develop relationships that transcend the relentless law of nature.”

-Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn (1918-2008), quoted in Helping People Forgive by David W. Augsburger, p. 10
