Forgiveness - What it Isn't

There are many misconceptions about forgiveness. Here are a few things that forgiveness DOESN'T mean.

In a recent sermon, Dr. Campbell spoke of the liberating nature of forgiveness, and she also clarified some of the things that forgiveness is not:

1.    Forgiving someone who did us wrong does not mean that we tolerate the wrong they did.

2.    Forgiving does not mean that we want to forget or deny what happened.

3.    Forgiveness does not mean that we excuse the person who hurt us.

4.    Forgiving does not mean that we take the edge off the evil of what was done to us.

5.    Forgiving does not mean that we surrender our right to justice.

6.    Forgiving does not mean that we invite someone who hurt us to hurt us again.

But forgiving is a gift we give to ourselves, because without it healing does not take place.

SERMON: Lean on Me

Grace is ... poured out freely, available to all of us, and it is completely unwarranted, unearned, and separate from merit. Do we have to be perfect ... ?

SERMON: Valentines and Broken Hearts

We can deal with our strong feelings or we can run. We need other people to deal with feelings. These moments require us to get over ourselves long enough to acknowledge and honor those around us as a first step.

SERMON: Shepherds, Caregivers and Caring

Sheepherders and Shepherdesses are caregivers and first responders. They are in a state of constant vigilance, with unseen burdens and mental health risks. All need community support.
