DEADLINE Deadline for churches is Friday at 12 noon Pander T00ese 00Kin#s in flour Yfeart By Dennis Justison In the last couple articles, I have talked about experiencing God as we let go of judgment and hate in our lives. Here is something else we can do as illustrated by this story from "Tales from the Magic i Monastery," by Theophane the Monk. There is a story about two brothers who also happen to be monks at the same monastery. The younger had offended the elder, but the older i brother would not forgive. Every morning the younger one would knock  on the door of his brother's room and call out, "Forgive me, Brother." But he would not. Day after day this went on, year after year. After many years, the younger brother did not show up one morning, ii Nor the next, nor the next. The older one became uneasy. Finally he ' went out to look for his brother. He knocked on every door. "Have you seen my brother?" No one had. He left the monastery and knocked on the doors of all the neighbors. "Have you seen my brother?" He kept going. Miles away from the monastery he would knock on a door. "Have you seen my brother?" People thought him strange, but he kept it up. Days went by, months, years. And that was all he had to say, except when someone would show annoyance he would say, "Forgive me, Brother." At last, after years of searching, he found himself back at his monastery. He knocked. The young Brother answered. He did not rec- ognize him, but was struck by the beauty of his face. He ran to call the others. They all came, crowding around. They were all struck by the beauty of this old man. Then one of the older monks finally recognized him and called out his name. Then the older Brother fell on his face. "Forgive me, Brothers," he said. They wept. All of them. Well, after that, they made up a new room for him right beside the abbot. And now, whenever any monk has difficulty forgiving his brother, why, he just slips in there for a few minutes. Guests to the monastery can do the same. Learning to forgive is necessary to life, a life with God, a life that ex- periences God. It can put joy in our steps and peace in our hearts. Yet, it often is so hard. Pride and other things get in our way of truly forgiv- ing. When the hurt is especially deep, we really need help, divine help, to forgive. 1 read recently that the average young child smiles 600 times every day while the average old man smiles twice. The article didn't explain why, and I suspect there are many reasons, but one of them I think is unforgiveness. When we do not forgive, we carry a great weight. There is a Bedouin saying, "What we carry around with us, keeps us from where we are going." This applies to material and spiritual things. We must let go of hurts just as much as things. I know how I am. After a few hurts, failures, and generally when life or others let me down, I can build a wall around myself that is hard to penetrate. I notice that I smile less. I come up with excuses not to for- give. Here's another story from Theophane: "Why not?" That was the first thing he said. He had never seen me before. I hadn't said a word. "Why not?" I knew he had me. I brought up excuses: "My wife...the people I have to work with...not enough time...I guess it's my temperament..." There was a sword hanging on the wall. He took it and gave it to me. "Here, with this sword you can cut through any barriers." I took it and slipped away without saying a word. Back in my room in the guesthouse I sat down and kept looking at that sword. I knew what he said was true. But the next day I returned his sword. How can I live without my excuses? ,j Peace. The Lord is with you.
