Forgiveness: Redeeming the Past, Unbinding the Future

March 14th & 21st
6 to 8 pm, Hall

Forgiveness can heal past wounds and open a future less determined by the past. It can also heal relationships, transforming enmity into friendship.

This study will explore the Biblical and theological traditions of forgiveness in dialogue with the arts and the social sciences. In the process, we will also look at the different dimensions of forgiveness and its limits, as well as explore related topics such as repentance, restitution, confession, sin and confrontation. In addition, this study will discuss some of the essential practices necessary to make forgiveness a way of life that contributes to building God’s beloved community.

Our Honourary Associate, The Reverend Canon Dr Gary Hauch is facilitating.
