Governor urges Kansans to seek and give forgiveness

TOPEKA, Kan. – Kansas Governor Sam Brownback issued a proclamation declaring Nov. 24-30 as “A Week of Reconciliation”.

“As we enter the holiday season, a time when families and friends gather to celebrate traditions, I encourage Kansans to consider the importance of reconciliation and forgiveness,” Brownback said.

The Governor cited author M. Scott Peck’s writings that “the overall purpose of human communication is – or should be – reconciliation. It should ultimately serve to lower or remove the walls of misunderstanding which unduly separate us human beings, one from another.”

“Forgiveness is a sign of strength,” Brownback said. “It may be difficult to reach out to those who have hurt us or those whom we have hurt, but I encourage all Kansans to build a bridge of reconciliation.”
