Adult Education

Forgiveness. Hard to give and yet we crave it for ourselves from each other and from God. It requires us to set aside ego and ask for it, or to look past our own hurts and offer it. In these two sessions we will explore what forgiveness is, what God and scripture command of us, how we fall short, and how we can see forgiveness and the act of forgiving as gifts we can offer each other and the world. In this sacred space, we will listen, share, and prayerfully explore what healthy, God-fearing forgiveness and reconciliation can look like in our lives. 
(Two sessions, May 12 and 19, Seminar Room)
