Sunday Meeting - Joe Chuman: Forgiveness

Date: 
Sunday, April 8, 2018 - 11:00am
Location: 
Ceremonial Hall - 4th floor

As vital as forgiveness in the lives of individuals and society, there is little discussion of it outside of religious circles. This platform will attempt to take a small step in redressing that imbalance as it explores important questions about our need to give, and to receive, forgiveness.

In return, being the object of injury generates feelings of resentment.
