Practicing Forgiveness, Part 4: Self-Forgiveness

Many of us struggle with being able to forgive ourselves for our past mistakes or habits that we have been unable to set down and walk away from, or even from things that happened to us that weren’t our fault.

This week we will talk about what we can do to move on from debilitating shame or excessive guilt and begin to see ourselves the way that God sees us–a beautiful part of this creation. “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.” [Jeremiah 29:11]

Worship begins at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday. We hope to see you then!

Practicing Forgiveness, Part 3: Being Forgiven

It is comforting to know that God forgives us immediately of everything we ever do that is wrong or hurtful. And, at the same time, we know that it doesn’t do a whole lot of good if we don’t ever change our behavior and stop acting in selfish or hurtful ways–God’s forgiveness is essential meaningless.

This week we will dig into how we can make changes that give God’s forgiveness meaning; that causes it to have real impact on our life.

See you Sunday at 10:30 a.m.
