Many people know about Dr Gary Chapman’s Five Languages of Love, but not his amazing sequel Five Languages of Apology. I commend to you a link to a great summary of the five languages of apology.
As we taught tens of thousands in Africa, we ended up invariably teaching on the Five Languages of Apology. By a show of hands, we found that few, even as Christians, had gone beyond the first language of Apology “I’m sorry (regret)”. What was encouraging was the willingness of the African Christians to start trying out the other four languages of Apology. Often we apologize, if at all, like our family of origin, has done it.
Sandy Brown and her family have just moved to Spokane, Washington where her husband, Scott, is pastoring a new church. With a fresh start, Sandy is determined to devote more time to her four children. But, within weeks of settling in their new life, the Brown family is plunged into turmoil.
Sandy receives shocking news that her children aren’t safe, which brings back haunting memories of the trauma she experienced as a girl. Then, the unthinkable happens…
A brutal attack puts Sandy on the brink of losing everything she’s loved. Her faith in God and the family she cherishes are pushed to the ultimate limit.
Is healing possible when so many loved ones are hurt? Are miracles really possible through the power of prayer? Can life return to the way it was before?
