FINDING A SAFE place to feel our feeling is not an escape or a running away from reality. Being in a safe place allows time for an inner drawing together, a form of deep centering, putting roots down in God’s vast love. This time allows emotional and spiritual healing while enclosed by God’s protection, God’s comfort.
—Flora Slosson Wuellner, Forgiveness the Passionate Journey: Nine Steps of Forgiving through Jesus’ Beatitudes (Upper Room Books, 2001)
