Moving on Through Forgiveness – A Lenten Study

Starts February 4, two weeks before Ash Wednesday.

An 8- week online Pre-Lent and Lenten study 

from The Wisdom Years

Feb 4 to March 25, 2021

Thursdays, 4 to 5:15 p.m.

Forgive and forget. We’ve been told that all our lives. And really, most of us would if we could. Yes, we know that resentment hurts us more than our enemies. But if forgetting must be part of our forgiveness, the task may be impossible, no matter how much we pray over it. 

Perhaps, remember and move on is better advice. Sometimes, we really were wronged; the offense was committed. Reconciliation may not be possible or even advisable. And sometimes we are the one who has committed the offense; how do we then move toward reconciliation? 

In this 8-week study we will consider forgiveness from the perspective of several writers who are known for their wisdom.  Each week we will read a different author, then practice little steps toward forgiveness throughout the week.

Each week will include

a reading on an aspect of forgiveness by a well-known spiritual writer

questions for reflection and discussion

a calendar of daily activities

small-group discussion by Zoom

Facilitators will be

Marjorie George – marjoriegeorge62@gmail.com

Carla Pineda – carlaleedpineda@gmail.com

The Rev. Patricia Riggins – prriggins@satx.rr.com

To reserve your spot in the study or for questions, send an email to one of the facilitators.
