Lenten Study Opportunities

Forgiveness, A Lenten Study, by Marjorie J. Thompson
Forgiving others and humbly asking for forgiveness are central disciplines for all Christian believers. Lent, a time toForgivenessCover reflect on our Christian journey, is an appropriate time to deepen our understanding and practice of forgiveness. Marjorie J. Thompson takes a close look at our understanding of forgiveness in this encouraging study. In six brief chapters, Thompson addresses such questions as the following:

  • Is forgiveness a Christian duty under all circumstances? Or are there situations when Christians do not need to forgive?
  • Is forgiveness a matter between individuals, or is it meaningful only in the context of communities?
  • Is forgiving the best route to healing for the injured?
  • How do we get past emotional barriers to real forgiveness?

Study groups begin the week of February 13 and will run for six weeks. Books will be available for $10.00. Checks can be made out to Broad Street UMC.  Leaders, times, and places:
