Theme: Forgiveness is a practice that has to be learned and embraced in order to experience the freedom of love and release from personal bondage.
Purpose: To discover practices of forgiveness.
Practice: “I choose forgiveness”
Scriptures: Ephesians 4:17-32 Take off the darkness of sin and put on Christ, do not allow evil to come out of your mouth.
Matthew 5:21-26, 43-48 Practice forgiveness and release others from their debts. Love all people and be perfect.
Questions: Do we really understand what forgiveness means? How do we learn to practice real forgiveness that is liberating and healing? Why do we try and substitute self-restraint and denial for real practices of release and forgiveness? How do we learn to forgive while we allow ourselves to work through our hurt and anger?
