FORGIVENESS IS A RADICAL ACT

Forgiveness ultimately frees us, but that doesn’t mean it’s a breeze to do in our lives. Jesus says some pretty interesting things about forgiveness, including in the prayer (commonly known as “The Lord’s Prayer”): “forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.” We’ll explore what it means to forgive others so that we can EXPERIENCE forgiveness. Sometimes, we have to forgive lots of times before it takes root in us — and that’s OK. Worship Leader-Rev.
