How do you forgive someone and go on with your life? It is not easy, is it?
Some cultures have customs of forgiveness. For example, the Masai in Tanzania perform an osotua, a word meaning “covenant.”
In his inspirational book, Christianity Rediscovered, Vincent Donovan relates how osotua works. If a sin has occurred between families within a community, it can be disastrous to the unity of the nomadic clan. It may threaten why they came together in the first place.
