The Changing Nature of Forgiveness

It's easy to be jaded about forgiveness in a world where a new celebrity or political scandal breaks out every week, followed by a predictable, often dubious, public apology (and maybe a stint in rehab).

On Tuesday she joins us for a conversation about the changing nature of forgiveness.
