STUDY GUIDE ON FORGIVENESS
At the conclusion of this week’s Service Booklet, is Session 6 of Bishop Philip’s Study Guide on Forgiveness.
“In this session we will reflect on Jesus’ words from the cross, in Luke’s gospel: “Father , forgive them; for they do not know what they are doing”. From the medieval Mystic Julian of Norwich, to the Solomon Islands Truth and Reconciliation Commission, Jesus’ Passion has inspired and enabled forgiveness, against the odds.”
