Join the roundtable discussion: Justice and Forgiveness

I just got a few email questions asking me about this roundatable discussion, what it was, how it worked, etc. So I thought I'd put up a brief explanation (brief for me, guys) explaining it better than I have. But of course, feel free to ask me if I need to explain more/better.

About two weeks ago, Mary-Lue asked me an amazing, challenging, thought-provoking, and intriguing interview question: Which is of greater necessity - justice or forgiveness?

Everyone had such great thoughts on this topic---but without adequate space in comments to fully develop an idea---that the Hump Day Hmmmmm was born.

Tomorrow, Wednesday, April 18, if you'd like to join us (and I hope you do!) write something about justice and forgiveness---any thoughts you have; feel free, for example, to answer the question, or feel free to go free form, whatever works for you---and post it to your blog.

Send me the link to your post (comment to me here with a link or email me at j pippert at g mail dot com) and I'll post a master link list, probably on Thursday-ish, just to give everyone time tomorrow to write and post.

If you feel like it, link back to the master link list so your readers can see all the other people who wrote about this topic.

If you have any questions, let me know. So far, some awesome bloggers have signaled participation. I can't wait.

Once again, I think this is an excellent idea. I'll see what tonight and tomorrow are like and do what I can, if I can.

Thank you. I look forward to it.

I'll do my best as well. It is going to require some thought. They're such entirely different concepts, yet inextricably united, that it will definitely take some thinking. :)

If I am able to come up with something worth sharing, I'll link it tomorrow afternoon ~ my time.

I'm with notsosage. I'll try, but things are crazy around here. I'd want to do it justice. Get it? ;)

I have been wanting to post about this exact topic. What timing! Count me in!

A virtual round table discussion? I love that idea!

jen said...

i'm in, dude. we are having a healthy debate on this tonight at casa talia.

Momish said...

I will try to if I get some time tomorrow after work! If all else fails, I will definitely be lurking around reading all those that manage their time better than I!

Hopefully I will untangle my time management issues as well. As it stands, I can't wait to read what you and the others come up with, even if I don't get the chance.

Okay, I'm done. I hate it, and it's long as all hell, but it's finished. Ish.

I did it, Julie. Here's the link to my post.


Great idea, by the way.

Mary-LUE said...

For better or for worse (which is my way of showing my insecurity), here is the link to my post:


I might do some minor edits here and there but I think the heart of it won't change. It is something of an extemporaneous piece. Life has been too crazy and I thought it best that I do something now rather than risk writing nothing later.

I wrote up a post a few days ago without knowing about the roundtable but I think it's appropriate. I sent the link to you but it can also be found at


I'm looking forward to the roundtable discussions.

Julie Pippert said...

Okay I've been surfuing all of your blogs...looking, watching, waiting. :)

I've got the post up now, and have added in those of you who alerted me (make sure you are there and all is okay!). Many thanks for that!

And thanks for all who participate, either by writing a post, or joining in with comments.

You guys rock. The casbah.
