Stuck On The Stoop: When Hurtful Memories Just Won't Go Away, a sermon by Rev. Scott Tayler, Co- Pastor of First Unitarian Church in Rochester, NY, given on 11/15/09 is well worth listening to.
It is a sermon on forgiveness.
Why should we forgive? To make things right with the offender? No says Rev. Taylor.
To make things right for ourselves? Yes says Scott.
We should let go of our anger because this day has so many other things to give us.
Don't be a monkey, says Scott. To understand what he means listen to the sermon. It's worth it.
