Forgiveness is news. When someone forgives terrible harm done to them, from the victims of terrorism to the violently bereaved, the
story is always news and often the person is treated as a moral hero. But does it take a special person to forgive and forget, or can
we all learn to do it? And why is forgiveness central to Jesus’ teaching? Lucy Winkett, priest and theologian, and Marian
Partington, whose sister was killed by Fred and Rose West, will explore the reality of the darkness in others and ourselves, and the
radical path of forgiveness.
