Journey of Forgiveness
What are the limits of forgiveness? How can we forgive? Can we expect others to? Forgiveness is not only a core Christian belief but also one of the most decisive ways in which faith and life connect. And yet forgiveness is one of the most difficult things we are challenged to engage in. Forgiveness is a BIG subject!
It is never an easy subject for us to explore. In intellectual terms it is tricky enough, but it also raises many emotional issues. In any group there will be people for whom ‘forgiveness’ brings to the surface difficult and sensitive personal memories. This course covers the challenges of living with hurt over a long period of time and looks at forgiveness on a wider, global level, as well as on a personal one. It has been carefully designed to help people engage with the subject realistically but without being overwhelmed by feelings.
Lindisfarne is launching this course for use throughout the North East. Each group will need both a facilitator and a pastor. We invite people interested in organising a group or serving as a facilitator or pastor to come to either of two training sessions:
Thursday 2 September, 7-9:30pm at Prior’s Hall, Durham Cathedral
Saturday 4 September, 10am – 12.30pm at the new St Nicholas Centre, Newcastle Cathedral
(01.09.10) PLEASE NOTE THAT THE TRAINING SESSION ON 4 SEPTEMBER HAS BEEN CANCELLED DUE TO A LACK OF INTEREST. IF YOU HADN’T BOOKED BUT WERE INTENDING TO COME ALONG TO THIS SESSION AND NEED SUPPORT RUNNING A COURSE, PLEASE CONTACT JENNY CRAWFORD (DETAILS BELOW).
To book a place please email Jenny Crawford, Administrator or telephone 0191 270 4144.
