Forgiveness happens within interpersonal relationships. Because we live in community of sinners, we are bound to hurt each other both unintentionally and by our sinful nature. As we live in families and communities, the way we related and treat each other could bless us or cause pain and hurt in our lives and families. Forgiveness allows us to give up our right to be right and give up the anger, resentment, and bitterness towards our offender. Drawing from my Rwandan experience and the biblical texts, I will guide the participants to understand the difference between forgiveness and reconciliation and how forgiveness promotes and sustains genuine reconciliation.
