In a sermon on forgiveness Laurence reflects on a Gospel story about Jesus' visit to the home of Simon the Pharisee, where he meets a woman the other men in the room call a sinner. Jesus accepts her devotion and affirms the forgiveness of her sins. Inside the story there is a short parable about debt and forgiveness. Laurence puts this alongside the recent action of the comedian and commentator John Oliver (available on YouTube). Laurence also refers to a book by Archbishop Desmond Tutu, of South Africa, No Future Without Forgiveness.
