Forgiveness

This week at Pub Theology we had a full house as we discussed forgiveness. We looked at passages from Scripture, quotes, and shared our own stories on what forgiveness means to us. It was an incredible time. One of the reasons I love Pub Theology is that it gives us a chance to explore topics in a relaxed environment. We all have the opportunity to become theologians at the pub.

Here are a couple quotes that stuck with us from the other night:

From the Lord's Prayer:
"Forgive us our sins as we have forgiven those who have sinned against us" 

From bell hooks:​

"For me, forgiveness and compassion are always
linked: how do we hold people accountable for wrongdoing
and yet at the same time remain in touch with
their humanity enough to believe in their capacity to
be transformed?"

I hope to see you all next month on the 18th at 8:00 p.m. as we discuss "Do we really need Lent?"
