Thanks for these links. I was pleasantly surprised (if that emotion is even valid in this situation) at Haggard's confession. I thought it sounded like it came from a genuinely contrite heart. May we use this opportunity to show the world how we forgive.

Right on. This post from Above All Things held a similar view.

Thank you for posting this. The letters both seemed very sincere. Gayle's especially touched my heart. I believe the Lord is already working to heal this man and his family. They are going to be a great example to the world of God's grace and mercy if we are willing to surrender to Him.

hey, i found your blog via allie's blog. im glad you posted these. i too hope this can be used to show how the church forgives. i really felt for his wife, and really appreciated her letter. this really is an opportunity to show that she is "real" and that she can practice what she preaches.
