Reflection for the Week–March 2

The paradoxical relation and distinction between guilt and debt plumbs the depths of forgiveness. True guilt is mine and remains mine, but my debt can be paid by another on my behalf, which results in release. Since I’m mired in degrees of inauthenticity and therefore robbed of the capacity to consistently act for the good of self, others, and institutions, I need an Authentic One to “recalibrate” my life, “lighten” my burden, and “open” a vein of trust. When that happens, I can hopefully and more reliably navigate my way through towards fresh expressions of integrity, justice, and love.
