What Are the Other Parts of the Forgiveness Conversation?
This is a raw edit of my thoughts on the conversation of forgiveness.   There is recent attention being given to this topic in light of the compassion expressed by Botham Jean's family. (#sayHisName).  This podcast episode is only a reaction to the topic that is raised and NOT a response to Botham Jean's family. (#sayHisName). I pray for Botham Jean's family that they have strength to continue healing in whatever way they deem fit/necessary/appropriate/needed/helpful.

Are You Uncomfortable When it’s Silent?
Some people become VERY uncomfortable when it's "too quiet." But they often have little to worry about because the world is so loud. There always seems to be some kind of technology buzzing its message to our ears, loved ones sharing details of their latest exploits, or any number of sounds permeating our walls from outside.  But being in silence can be calming and in this episode, I share how to get comfy in silence so we can take care of ourselves. This is a chilled-out  episode so be careful; you might get lulled to a restful state!
