We live in a broken world. Things are not perfect, there is deep pain and suffering. Despite our best intentions, we are unfair to each other and deeply hurt one another.
It’s been said that God’s invention to help humans come to terms with our imperfection is forgiveness. God’s most profound work, through Jesus, is about forgiveness. And Jesus asks us to not only learn more about it, but to likewise practice forgiveness.
The purpose of this course is to help us better understand what forgiveness is, why we should practice it, and how to go about this admittedly difficult task.
Dr. Virginia Holeman is a trustworthy guide along this journey. She is an author of Reconcilable Differences (see more below), professor, and licensed psychologist and Marriage and Family therapist who specializes in forgiveness.
In this class Dr. Holeman will teach us:
- What forgiveness is and isn’t
- Why forgive?
- How can I forgive or understand the process of forgiving?
- Does forgiveness also mean reconciliation with the person who wounded me?
This course, which was produced by Chris Yaw, is a helpful way to inform, inspire, and empower all of us who are given the ministry of forgiveness and reconciliation.
