Chestnut Ridge Church
Forgive and Forget?—Part 1
Extending forgiveness to those who have wronged you can be a healing experience for everyone involved. But sometimes, it’s just not that easy. The topic of forgiveness raises many questions. Do I have to forgive everyone or are there exceptions? What does it mean to forgive? Should forgiveness always lead to reconciliation? What if I or someone else has done something "unforgivable"? How do I forgive myself? If you’ve ever wondered why forgiveness is essential to our well-being, or how you can begin to forgive others or yourself, tune in for this compelling new series. Together, we’ll focus on how God forgives us, and how we can begin to implement forgiveness in our lives, even when it seems out of reach.
