Forgiveness: Finding Peace Through Letting Go
A DVD series by Adam Hamilton
Please sign up in Healy Hall
Adam Hamilton equates our need to forgive and be forgiven with carrying a backpack filled with rocks. Over time the tiny pebbles and giant boulders weigh us down and break more than our spirit. In this series, he shows readers how to receive the freedom that comes with forgiving – even if the person needing to be forgiven is ourself. In a warm style, he walks people through the challenges that come with learning to forgive and ask forgiveness. Freedom, grace, reconciliation, and joy are all promised to those who embrace forgiveness.
The Rev. Adam Hamilton is a Methodist minister in Kansas and he gave the sermon at the prayer service after the inauguration in January.
There is an optional book (same name as DVD) you may purchase on Amazon for $15 (if people go together, there would be free shipping).
