As imperfect people living in an imperfect world, we eventually find ourselves needing to extend or receive forgiveness in nearly every relationship.

But when the wounds run deep, forgiveness doesn’t come easy.

This liberating study deals with the difficult questions of forgiveness, and participants will learn how to unleash the healing power of forgiveness through learning what the Bible says on this vital topic.

As we encounter the depths of God’s own mercy and discover how choosing forgiveness can free us from a painful past and propel us toward being all that God intends us to be.
