13. How to Forgive an A**hole with Nadia Bolz-Weber

Being a religious leader doesn’t mean you're an expert at practicing forgiveness. Lutheran minister Nadia Bolz-Weber says being in quarantine gave her the ego check she needed to get real about forgiveness and compassion -- for herself and others. This episode’s practice is about apologies and circling back to the relationships in your life that could use some mending.    Want to connect?
