Atonement made sense to me … at last

I grew up with strong roots in a traditional Christian religion, and will always appreciate how my family instilled in me the importance of drawing close to God. However, by the time I was married and a young mother, I was disturbed by some of the theological teachings of that faith, especially the doctrine of atonement. And I thought the explanation of the doctrine of atonement was pretty much the same among all Christian religions.

At the time, I was taking a parenting class moderated by a woman who had raised two sons. The group discussions revolved around some books on teaching young children to be responsible, as well as techniques for constructive and kind discipline. As the parents shared their challenges and asked questions, I found myself in awe of the moderator’s wisdom and love, which struck me as both profound and practical.
