I just couldn’t put it into words.’”Watson continues to talk about his post, what should be done now, and how to respond. “We need to reconcile in the Church; because we’re the ones that should understand it. We’re the ones that have been saved by grace. We’re the ones that, um, understand what it means to love unconditionally. We’re the ones to understand forgiveness. We’re the ones that understand people are created in God’s image…”
