Forgiveness is Freedom

At the time of this recording, we are about to enter the Easter Weekend. As we reflect upon the meaning of why we celebrate this holiday as Christians, we are drawn to the aspect of forgiveness.

Tiffany shares her article Forgiveness is Freedom and we unpack forgiveness and how it really does bring freedom.

Reference article John Hopkins Medicine:

  • Forgiveness: Your health depends on it  “There is an enormous physical burden to being hurt and disappointed,” says Karen Swartz, M.D., director of the Mood Disorders Adult Consultation Clinic at The Johns Hopkins Hospital. Chronic anger puts you into a fight-or-flight mode, which results in numerous changes in heart rate, blood pressure, and immune response. Those changes, then, increase the risk of depression, heart disease, and diabetes, among other conditions. Forgiveness, however, calms stress levels, leading to improved health.”
