Question and answer
Q: What role do forgiveness and grace play in conflict resolution?
A: Forgiveness as a way of healing human relationships and solving human conflicts is an age-old practice that appears in numerous religious traditions across the globe. [ [ There are a number of problems, however, with defining what exactly this activity is or has been in these traditions, what its significance is within these meaning systems, and, finally, what usefulness, if any, do these
traditions play in contemporary analysis of conflict and peacemaking. In particular, forgiveness as a means of peacemaking, depending on how it is realized, brings into sharp relief the perennial challenge of balancing peace and justice in the pursuit of conflict resolution. Often, at least on the surface, it appears that forgiveness is at odds with the demands of justice, at least as justice is perceived by either side of a conflict. ]

User: What are the characteristics of forgiveness and grace?

Weegy: We forgive every time. We forgive even if they don?t repent. We don?t always have to tell someone we forgave him or her. Forgiveness starts with a conscious decision. Forgiveness does not mean we let the offender off the hook. Forgiveness is [ not letting the offense recur again and again. Forgiveness is not the same as reconciling. Forgiveness is not based on the other party?s actions, but on out attitude. Forgiveness is not needed for accidents. Withholding forgiveness is a refusal to let go of perceived power. ]
