Forgiveness

Adam Howie

Edinburgh, United Kingdom

Artist's Description

Inspired by the twenty-eighth day of the Lent study “Atheism for Lent – http://www.atheismforlent.net/forgiveness/

Inspired by the following, “… as we reach into the depths of our soul, our tradition, and our upbringing we no doubt reveal some wounds that had not had time to heal. As we pull away the bandaid of religion we reveal the hurt we have received and experienced. And we likely point a finger at whoever is responsible for the scar we’ve discovered.
Forgiveness is not implicitly religious; it is implicitly human. It is to “give the before.” It’s not always easy, in fact it rarely is, but it reminds us of our common humanity, our sadly natural ability to bring someone with us when we’re falling, hoping they will catch our fall but knowing that they will likely fall with us. And when we fall (or are pushed and pulled down), we have the opportunity, obligation even, to request and extend forgiveness.”

Created in PS CS6, total time around 90min
