Healing Wounded History: Reconciling Peoples and Healing Places by Russ Parker
Parker argues that in terms of pastoral care and healing, it is crucial to approach persons not simply as individuals, but as individuals in community. He begins by reflecting on the biblical image of healing the land and the related concepts of the power of wounded stories and the witness of confession. Parker then considers the roles that confession and apology play in bringing about reconciliation and the healing of relationships at a range of group and institutional levels, including family, congregation, community, and nation.
