Course Description: Forgiveness Training Program:
Teach Them How to Forgive!
"Jesus told us we need to forgive but he never taught us how." - Steve Andreas
Forgiving others is actually quite easy when you know how.
Sadly many in our world and in our communities of faith do not know how.
One of the big contributors to this "not knowing how" is that words like resentment, forgiveness, and reconciliation are used in teaching programs and sermons without ever being defined in behavioral ways that help the hearers implement a forgiveness strategy.
In this one-day training program we will behaviorally define these terms and you will learn specific steps to lead a person from a state of resentment to a state of forgiveness.
Forty years I´ve been carrying this resentment, had therapy with two psychiatrists about it, and now in just a few minutes it´s gone. It´s like a miracle. Diane, a forgiveness retreat participant.
