Oscar Wilde said, "Always forgive your enemies – nothing annoys them so much."

Forgiving those that have wronged you can be really difficult to do, and we have all struggled with this at one time or another in our lives. On the next edition of the show, Mike and Sharon's guest is pastor and author David Peterson. David's latest book Journey to Forgiveness: 21 Milestones to Freedom is the subject of their conversation.
They we also look back at the tragic mass shooting on March 27, 2023 at The Covenant School, in Nashville, Tennessee.

David Peterson Bio
Rev. David P. Peterson is an ordained pastor and board-certified chaplain, with over thirty years of experience in ministry to congregations, as well as chaplaincy experience in hospitals, fire/ems, law enforcement and hospice. He's provided emotional and spiritual care on the scenes of devastating events from 9/11 to school shootings and various community tragedies and in 1994, founded Shepherd’s Staff Pastoral Services, where he was able to provide spiritual care to thousands via chaplains he trained and placed at long term care facilities across the U.S.

A study in resiliency and forgiveness, David has lived all his life with tremors in his hands and arms and navigated the bullying, harassment and embarrassing moments it has invited from those who lack understanding and empathy. And at the age of 12, he was targeted by a neighborhood pedophile who used alcohol, pornography and affirmation to abuse him sexually, emotionally, spiritually and mentally. Years of silence, anger, shame and self- destructive behaviors followed before healing and forgiveness transformed him.

David and his wife, Arden — as well as their four sons and their families — reside in Chesapeake, Virginia.
Serenity Prayer
God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time;
enjoying one moment at a time;
accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
taking, as He did, this sinful world
as it is, not as I would have it;
trusting that He will make all things right
if I surrender to His Will;
that I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with Him
forever in the next.
Amen.
