The Rmarkable Power of Forgiveness
‘I bear no ill will. I bear no grudge. That sort of talk is not going to bring her back to life. She’s in heaven and we shall meet again.

The song was seen as a way of expressing unity, as people fought for equal rights and freedom. ‘This Little Light of Mine’ is based on the words of Matthew’s Gospel that we hear today: ‘No one lights a lamp to put it under a...
