Yes, we often do claim that we forgive a person; but when do not forget the hurt they have caused and keep bringing it up in our memories, have we really forgiven them? The Bible instead tells us that we should forgive others in the same way God has forgiven us. How has he forgiven us? He has forgiven us completely and fully if we have turned to him, so much so that he both 'forgives and forget." The Bible says, "As far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us." (Psalm' 103:12) God also has promised, "I will forgive their wickedness and will remember their sins no more." (Jeremiah 31:34) We have wronged God, but he still loves us and offers us complete forgiveness in Christ. In the same way, we Ground Broken For S.C.

Butler Derrick, called it "a milestone in the history of this country. is the first time the federal government has made a firm commitment to deal with the problem of high-level nuclear waste," Derrick told a crowd of about 500 dignitaries who gathered at the Savannah River Plant to witness the groundbreaking. The Savannah River Plant produces most of the plutonium and other materials for the nation's atomic weapons. For the past three decades, wastes from its operations have been stored as highly radioactive sludge in steel tanks. There are now about 30 million gallons of the waste.

S.C. Leaders Lobby Energy Secretary For Plant NEW ELLENTON, S.C.

(AP) U.S. Secretary of Energy Donald Hodel was a target of opportunity Tuesday for state leaders who want a planned new nuclear weapons reactor built in South Carolina and nowhere else. Hodel was sharing the head table with Gov. Dick Riley and U.S. Rep.

Butler Derrick, at groundbreaking ceremonies at the Savannah River Plant for a new waste processing facility, The energy secretary said recently that the preferred site for the New Production Reactor, which leaders of both states are anxious to have for the jobs and money it would generate. During a September visit to Columbia, Hodel said South Carolina was still in the running for the new reactor, but he said he had detected some hostility to nuclear facilities among the state's leaders. a Riley fired off a letter to Hodel insisting that this wasn't true, and he directed many of his remarks to the subject when he took the podium Tuesday as Hodel sat nearby. "I regret, that it's been determined that the preferred location is Idaho," Riley said. He added that the Savannah River Plant.

where most of the nation's nuclear weapons materials are produced, had the people and facilities for the New Production Reactor. "I don't know of any reason it should go elsewhere," the governor said. "And I believe that when all the alternatives are considered, South Carolina will prove to be the best site. state, this plant has the right stuff for this new facility," Riley said, "and I think it ought to come here. Derrick took up the refrain when it was his turn to speak.

"The Savannah River Plant is the place for it to be constructed," he said. "South Carolina is pro-nuclear defense. We want that New Production Reactor down Then he turned directly to Hodel and said with a smile, "Your may not be convinced now, but we're going to get it." When Hodel got up, he said Thurmond's wife, Nancy, had been whispering the same message in his ear while Riley and Derrick spoke. He said the environmental impact statement to be prepared on the new reactor would include the Savannah River Plant as a prospective site.

The Bible declares, "Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful Forgive, and you will be forgiven" (Luke We read also that "Peter came to Jesus and asked, 'Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother when he sins against me? Up to seven Jesus answered, "I tell you, not seven times, but seventyseven (Matthew Jesus was saying that our forgiveness should have no limit, because God's forgiveness toward us has no limit. You may feel that it is impossible to forgive a wrong deed and actually put it from your mind as if it never happened. But it is possible, if you will remember what Christ has done for us. He made it possible for us to be forgiven by God, because he was willing to die on the cross for us. He did it out of love for us, although we are not worthy of his love.

Turn to Christ for forgiveness. Realize just how much he loves you, and thank him for his mercy to you.
