We’re doing something new this winter. Have you noticed? The small group sign-ups have a lot of the same group, meeting on different nights around the city: it’s that Forgiveness group. Instead of having many different conversations, we’re having one large conversation as a church about a central Christian belief and practice. You could argue that forgiveness is the central belief and practice. So what’s it matter to you?
Forgiveness is for all of us. It’s been given to us and we’re called to practice it. But how? “Should I forgive him?” “Did she ever really forgive me?” “Can I forgive myself?” “What does it add up to that God forgives me?” Come engage with the rubber-meets-the-road questions of our faith.
One thing that’s not new: these groups are still a great chance to get to know other folks from church in a casual setting. And they’re still an important opportunity to grow closer to God. Groups start next week (although the Monday night group now starts on Feb. 21st) and you can see an overview of the whole curriculum on our blog. Get your juices flowing by listening to the sermon on forgiveness from Jan 23rd or Georgette Kelly’s testimony about being part of a forgiveness small group and then join the conversation.
This winter, try something new. It’ll be hard…and it could change your life.
