Common Stories, Common Ground

Conversations about forgiveness, which have traditionally taken place in homes and at communal gatherings, are virtually absent from public spaces. This absence undermines a commitment to community. Our research team seeks to explore forgiveness as it is perceived, struggled with, and acted out by everyday people.

We welcome you to enter the conversation by reading others’ stories and sharing your own!
