Following up on the theme of 'Redeeming Failure,' this study will now begin to look at "Forgiveness."  As God's people, this is a key component in our life with God and one another. While it is imperative from God's perspective, it is often a difficult truth to live out.  We will be delving into scriptures, narratives, and real life as we explore what forgiveness means. After forgiveness, we will pivot to "Stewardship."
